About the song:

 

The album is most notable for containing Nelson's first solo recording of “Good Hearted Woman,” a song he composed with his friend Waylon Jennings. Jennings, who had been fighting many of the same battles with RCA as Nelson, started writing the song and asked Nelson to help him finish it during a late-night poker game at the Fort Worther Motel on Jackson Highway in Fort Worth.By all accounts, Nelson's contribution was minimal, with his third wife Connie recalling, “The only part Willie came up with was‘ Through teardrops and laughter they walk through this world hand in hand. ” Waylon said, ‘ That’s it! That’s what’s missing ’and gave Willie half the song.”

Willie Nelson – Good-Hearted Woman Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

A long time forgotten

Are dreams that just fell by the way

And the good life he promised

Is not what she’s living to day

But she never complains of

The bad times or bad things he’s done

She’s just talks about the good times

They’ve had and all the good times to come

 

[Chorus]

She’s a good hearted woman

In love with a good timin’ man

And she loves him in spite of his ways

That she don’t understand

And through teardrops and laughter

They’ll pass though this world hand in hand

This good hearted woman

In love with her good timin’ man

 

[Verse 2]

Now he likes the night life

The bright lights and good timin’ friends

And when the party’s all over

She welcome him back home again

Though she don’t understand him

She does the best that she can

This good hearted woman

In love with her good timin’ man

 

[Chorus]

She’s a good hearted woman

In love with a good timin’ man

And she loves him in spite of his ways

That she don’t understand

And through teardrops and laughter

They’ll pass though this world hand in hand

This good hearted woman

In love with her good timin’ man

 

She’s a good hearted woman

In love with a good timin’ man

And she loves him in spite of his ways

That she don’t understand
