"One Good Woman" is a popular song from 1988 by Peter Cetera, formerly the lead singer of the rock band Chicago. Cetera co-wrote and co-produced the track with Patrick Leonard, and the song was included on Cetera's 1988 album One More Story.

The song was originally to be included in the Tom Hanks film Big, but Cetera withdrew "One Good Woman" from consideration because 20th Century Fox had proposed too many changes.[1] Instead, it became the lead single from his One More Story album and reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in October 1988. It also spent four weeks atop the Billboard adult contemporary chart.
