You Belong To Me

Written by Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart & Chilton Price
Recorded by Bob Dylan for Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers.
Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem
Thanks to John for a great request!


From Olof's files: “Dylan sings a song from 1952 called You Belong To Me, written by Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart and Chilton Price. It's an acoustic solo recording that could very well have been recorded at the same time as Good As I Been To You or World Gone Wrong.”

C                  Em
 See the pyramids along the Nile
F                         C
 Watch the sunrise from a tropic isle
F       Fm              C       Am
 Just remember, darling all the while
Dm'            G7sus4
 You belong to me

C                       Em
 See the marketplace in old Algiers
F                        C
 Send me photographs and souvenirs
F       Fm            C     /b Am
 Just remember when a dream appears
Dm'    G7sus4  C
 You belong to me

C           C7       F
I'll be so alone without you
D7                       G
Maybe you'll be lonesome too
    Csus4
And blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'til you're home again
You belong to me
[instrumental verse, as intro]
I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too
And blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'til you're home again
You belong to me

[more instrumental verses, over the following dialogue (in a southern accent), which you could let some friends take, while you finish off the song:

Juliette Lewis: “I just want to tell you I love you, and I miss you. Don't
forget about me. You won't forget about me?”
Woody Harrelson: “I won't forget about you. It's cool. No matter where he takes
you, Timbouktou, it don't matter, because it's fate. Know? Nobody can
stop fate. Nobody can.”]
