Demo Tips & Pdf

This song was co-written by both Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Waylon saw the phrase in a newspaper making reference to Tin and Ike Turner about a good hearted woman lovin a two timing man, so he wrote down the phrase. He joined Willie playing a poker game and while they both played poker, Willie's wife took notes.

Waylon recorded the song in 1972 and then again for "The Outlaws" album, and when released as a single went to #1. Both he and Willie were catapulted into stars of country as the song won single of the year in 1976 at the CMA's.

Good Hearted Woman Lyrics

A long time forgotten are dreams that just fell by the way
The good life he promised ain't what she's living today
But she never complains of the bad times or bad things he's done, Lord
She just talks about the good times they've had and all the good times to come

She's a good-hearted woman in love with a good-timin' man
She loves him in spite of his ways that she don't understand
Through teardrops and laughter, they'll pass through this world hand-in-hand
A good-hearted woman loving her good timing man

He like the night life, the bright lights and good-timin' friends
When the party's all over she'll welcome him back home again
Lord knows she don't understand him, but she does the best that she can
'Cause she's a good-hearted woman; she loves her good timin' man

She's a good-hearted woman in love with a good-timin' man
She loves him in spite of his ways that she don't understand
Through teardrops and laughter, they'll pass through this world hand-in-hand
A good-hearted woman loving her good timing man

She's a good-hearted woman in love with a good-timin' man
She loves him in spite of his ways that she don't understand
Through teardrops and laughter, they'll pass through this world hand-in-hand
A good-hearted woman loving her good timing man

A good-hearted woman loving her good timing man
