Line(s) of the Day #Alwaysonmymind

Always on my Mind single designMaybe 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.

The opening lyrics of the hit single ‘Always on my Mind’ by Elvis Presley (1972). Though originally recorded by Brenda Lee and Glenn McCrae, it is Presley’s version that is considered the definitive version.

  1. I do like the song,its all nice and weepy etc,, especially if you have had a bad day etc and want to feel sorry for yourself.!, But it always sounds to me like the ultimate cop out song (for someone to sing to their someone) when someone suddenly realises they have behaved badly (or like some slob) and hope to sing their way out of trouble (guilt etc). It should come with a warning to listeners,that.people don’t ever change that much even when they have seen the light.!( End of rant)

  2. I always think of Willie Nelson when I hear this. I don’t think I realized the Brenda Lee connection before.
