Deep Cuts From 1971: ‘Good Hearted Woman’- Waylon Jennings. A #3 country hit for Waylon Jennings in 1971- and one of his signature songs. The song was written by Waylon and his country outlaw buddy Willie Nelson.

from wikipedia-

In 1969, while staying at the Fort Worther Motel in Fort Worth, Texas,[1] Waylon Jennings was inspired to start writing the song when he saw an advertisement on a newspaper promoting Tina Turner as a “good hearted woman loving two-timing men”, a reference to Ike Turner. Jennings went to talk to Nelson, who was in a middle of a poker game. He joined the game, and told Nelson about his idea. While they kept playing, they expanded the lyrics as Nelson’s wife Connie Koepke was writing them down.

  1. I always considered the Outlaws as the punk equivalent to country music…Merle wasn’t considered one right?
