"Always on My Mind (Brenda Lee cover)" as written by John Jr. Christopher, Wayne Thompson and Mark James....
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
If I made you feel second best
Girl I'm sorry I was blind

But you were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
I guess I never told you
That I am so happy that you're mine
If I made you feel second best
Girl I'm sorry I was blind

But 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
I'll keep you satisfied

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
But you were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

    General CommentWell, actually it's not a Willie Nelson song either. He didn't write it nor was he the first to record it, contrary to popular belief. It was written by Johnny Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson Thompson. It was first recorded by Brenda Lee in 1973, nearly 10 years before Nelson made it famous. Elvis Presley recorded it prior to Nelson, also.

    General Commentis that Norah Jones on backup vocals towards the end? It kind of sounds like her and she did "Dear John" so it seems possible.
