Always on my mind

You were....

With my guitar and banjolele, taking a stab at the classic.

Instead of being lazy and recording directly to my computer, I got out my condenser mic for the first time in a long time. It's such a joy.

From the Wikipedia entry:
Always on My Mind is an American country music song by Johnny Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, recorded first by Gwen McCrae (as "You Were Always On My Mind") and Brenda Lee in 1972. Allmusic lists over 300 recorded releases of the song in versions by dozens of performers.[1] While Brenda Lee's version had stalled at #45 on the country charts in 1972, other performers would reach 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; Pet Shop Boys in 1987.
