D              A
Maybe I didn't treat you 
Bm       D                G    A
Quite as good as I should have 
D              A
Maybe I didn't love you 
Bm       D                G   A
Quite as often as I could have 
G                           D
Little things I should have said and done 
G            D        Em   A
I just never took the time 


D        A7           D
You were always on my mind 
G        A7           D   G  A
You were always on my mind 


D              A
Maybe I didn't hold you 
Bm        D              G   A
All those lonely, lonely times 
D                   A
And I guess I never told you 
Bm     D                 G   A
I'm so happy that you're mine 
G                  D
If I make you feel second best 
G         D           Em   A
Girl, I'm sorry I was blind 


D        A7           D
You were always on my mind 
G        A7           D   G  A
You were always on my mind 
G                           D
Little things I should have said and done 
G            D        Em   A
I just never took the time 


D        A7           D
You were always on my mind 
G        A7           D   G  A
You were always on my mind

  3. Ssssoooo DIFFUCULT OK PEOPLE WHO I DONT KNOW???????????

  4. BK.LIndsey

    Bridge is
    C-G-Am-C-F-C-Dm x2
    G-C.
    For -2 transposition

  5. Originally the bridge was there when it was originally written. Producer Chips Moman during the original recording of the song insisted that the song needed a bridge and the writers added a two line bridge.

  6. It was first recorded by Gwen McCrae as “You Are Always on My Mind”, and Brenda lee in 1972. the song was passed along to Elvis through one of his bodyguards. Elvis recorded the song March 29, 1972, a few weeks after his February separation from wife and the song became a standard in his set list till his death in 1977. John Wesley Ryle’s recorded the song in 1979 as “You Are Always on My Mind”. Willie Nelson recorded the song and released in the spring of 1982 and won three Grammy’s and four CMA’s and Nelson’s version was inducted into the Grammy HOF in 2008. I prefer the Elvis version.

  7. I really like this song ukufied sounds great, thanks

  9. ZeldaEsther

    I agree, Fiona… Also, isn’t this by Willie Nelson?
