Pee Wee King wrote it.

and you give the Wikipedia entry on the song as your reference, Perhaps, Brakn, you should read the whole damn thing instead of selectively editing out the REAL composer of You Belong To Me, CHILTON PRICE

from the Wikipedia entry, as follows:

"It is credited to three writers: Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart, and Chilton Price. Actually PRICE WROTE THE SONG, and GAVE RIGHTS TO THE OTHER TWO IN EXCHANGE FOR PUBLICITY. She did this because of the success of an earlier hit which she had written, "Slow Poke," which had done so well with a similar arrangement that she felt she could do better by ceding partial credit for authorship to King and Stewart, rather than trying to publicize the song herself [1].

The original version of the song was recorded by Sue Thompson on Mercury's country label, soon covered by Patti Page, whose version was issued by Mercury as catalog number 5899, with the flip side "I Went to Your Wedding" (a bigger Patti Page hit, reaching #1). It entered the Billboard chart on August 22, 1952, and lasted 12 weeks on the chart, peaking at #4."
