“You’re My Man” is a popular No. 1 country hit by country artist Lynn Anderson from 1971.
This song was immediately released after Anderson’s song “(I Never Promised You a) Rose Garden” became a major country and pop hit in February 1971. The song was very successful, reaching the top of the country charts in June 1971, and was Anderson’s second No. 1 country hit.The song reached No. 1 on the Billboard and Cashbox Country Charts.
“You’re My Man” was a major Adult Contemporary hit, placing at No. 6. “You’re My Man” spent one week at No. 1 on the country charts, and was one of 11 singles Anderson would place at the No. 1 position.
“You’re My Man” is mainly about the narrator describing her affection for her lover, saying there is no one else in the world for her, and she wants “the whole world to know”. The song’s orchestral arrangements and pop-influenced sound made it a Countrypolitan recording.
