Good Hearted Woman [Live version (a)]:

[From November 23 2002 duet]

She's a good hearted woman lovin' a good-timin' man
She loves him in spite of his wicked ways she don't understand
Through teardrops and laughter, they'll pass through this world hand-in-hand
A good hearted woman lovin' a good-timin' man
The Song:

Beck and Wayne from the Flaming Lips duetted on this country ode to the women who love them and turn a blind eye to their wicked ways. They did just a verse of it at the KCRW benefit concert on November 23 2002. (They also covered "I Got You Babe" together that night.) This song was originally written by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, both of whom Beck has covered or worked with before (Waylon & Willie).

After the November 23 KCRW benefit, Beck and Wayne continued to throw a duet verse out on their own concerts. It always came as part of their spiel about "what duet should we do?" which has them mess around on "I Got You Babe" and then "Good Hearted Woman." However, Beck and Wayne aren't as outlaw as Waylon and Willie, so they do "Who Loves the Sun?" instead.
