Hey, see'mon. 
First time I heard "Good Hearted Woman",
I was in my uncle's car.

The economy was the worst you ever saw,
Yeah, but '85 was a good year for the outlaw, son. 

Instrumental Break.
(Turn it up.)
(Whoo, see'mon.)
(Yeah.) 

Now somewhere in some honky tonk,
You don't even know his name,
