Waylon's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 is a compilation album by Waylon Jennings, released on RCA Victor in 1984. It contains several songs recorded primarily in the later period of the singer's career, encompassing the late 1970s as well as the early 1980s. Although several relatively obscure tracks were included, the compilation also contains the hits "Theme from the Dukes of Hazzard (Good Ol' Boys)" and "Don't You Think This Outlaw Bit's Done Got Out of Hand". "Looking for Suzanne", "America" and "Waltz Me to Heaven" are all previously unreleased Jennings recordings; the first of these made a reappearance on Jennings' Sweet Mother Texas (1986). "America" and "Waltz Me to Heaven" charted as singles, reaching #6 and #10, respectively, with a music video being released for the former; the album peaked at #27 on the country charts.
