"Baby It's You" as written by Burt Bacharach, Mack David and Barney Williams....
It's not the way you smile that touched my heart
It's not the way you kiss that tears my apart

But how many many many nights go by
I sit alone at home and cry over you
What can I do, can't help myself
'Cause baby it's you, baby it's you

You should hear what they say about you (cheat, cheat)
They say, they say you never never ever been true (cheat, cheat)

Wo ho, it doesn't matter what they say
I know I'm gonna love you any old way
What can I do, then it's true
Don't want nobody, nobody
'Cause baby it's you, baby it's you

Wo ho, it doesn't matter what they say
I know I'm gonna love you any old way
What can I do, then it's true
Don't want nobody, nobody
'Cause baby it's you
Baby it's you, don't leave me all alone

    General CommentI don't think it was composed by Bob Dylan, although it appears to be composed by Bacharach/David/Williams. It was originally a Shirelles song.

    General CommentHere's another fine example of John rocking out. What I like most about these early recordings is the lack of overdubbing and we get to listen to a perfect vocal from John recorded in a live environment in Studio #2. Awesome Tune!

    General CommentIf you want to hear some great vocals by John, then listen to the Live at the BBC version of this song. I'm not a big fan of this song, but once John began to sing there was no way I could skip it. I really do think he had one of the best voices in rock that we'll ever hear.

    General CommentGot to love George for the way sings the answer line "cheat, cheat". He sounds quite bitter.
