Good Hearted Woman Lyrics

Waylon Jennings

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
