آهنگ الویس پریسلی : متن ترانه

Maybe I didn’t treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn’t love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
Maybe I didn’t hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I’m so happy that you’re mine
If I made you feel second best
Girl I’m so sorry, I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
Tell me
Tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
Satisfied
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
Maybe I didn’t treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn’t love you
Quite as often as I could have
Maybe I didn’t hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you

Always on My Mind” is a love song written by Wayne Carson, Johnny Christopher, and Mark James, first recorded by B.J. Thomas in 1970, and first released by Gwen McCrae (as “You Were Always on My Mind”) in 1972. Brenda Lee also released a version in 1972. The song has been a crossover hit, charting in both the country and western and pop categories.

AllMusic lists over 300 recorded releases of the song in versions by dozens of performers.[1] While Lee’s version had stalled at number 45 on the US country chart in 1972, other performers reached the top 20 in the United States and elsewhere with their own versions: Elvis Presley in 1972; John Wesley

Ryles in 1979; Willie Nelson’s Grammy Award-winning version in 1982; and Pet Shop Boys in 1987.
