You're My Man is a popular No. 1 Country hit by Country legend 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. "You're My Man" was the song's first follow-up to the monster hit. The song was very successful, reaching the top of the country charts in June of 1971, becoming Anderson's second No. 1 country hit. The song hit No. 1 on the Billboard and Cashbox Country Charts. However, "You're My Man" was not as big of a hit as "Rose Garden" on the pop charts, only peaking at at No. 63.

"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 would be one of eight 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.
