Good Hearted Woman is an album by Waylon Jennings, released in 1972 on RCA Records. Along with Ladies Love Outlaws, released later that same year, and Lonesome, On'ry and Mean (released early the following year), it was responsible for transforming Jennings' image into that of one of the representatives of the outlaw country movement. The original liner notes by Willie Nelson describe the first time Jennings and Nelson met, in Phoenix, Arizona. The album reached #7 on the country charts, with the title track and "Sweet Dream Woman" becoming top ten singles. A live version of the title track (with Nelson) became a #1 hit in 1976.

This album was reissued in 1978 by RCA (AYL1-3737) with the same track listing, but different cover art. Willie Nelson's back cover liner notes were not included.
