Mentioned by Mark Clark back near the beginning of this thread.

THE WURLITZER PRIZE (I DON'T WANT TO GET OVER YOU)
(Chips Moman, Bobby Emmons)

I'm not here to forget you. I'm here to recall
The things we used to say and do.
I don't want to get over you.
I don't want to get over you.

I haunt the same places we used to go,
Alone at a table for two.
I don't want to get over you.
I don't want to get over you.

They ought to give me the Wurlitzer prize
For all the silver I let slide down the slot
Playing those songs sung blue.
They help me remember you.
I don't want to get over you.

A fresh roll of quarters‚ same old song,
Missing you through and through.
I don't want to get over you.
I don't want to get over you.

They ought to give me the Wurlitzer prize
For all the silver I let slide down the slot
Playing those songs sung blue.
They help me remember you.
I don't want to get over you.

I don't want to get over you.
I don't want to get over you.

[Recorded by Waylon Jennings, Norah Jones, and Willie Nelson.]
