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.”
