Songfacts®:

  • In this song, Earle has a case of the lovesick blues and is determined to find the one girl who lights his fire. He knows she doesn't treat him well, but she's the only one that will do.
  • At the request of T Bone Burnett, Earle wrote the song "If Momma Coulda Seen Me" for a Season 1 episode of Nashville that aired in 2013. The next season, Buddy Miller took over from Burnett as musical director on the show and asked Earle for another song. He delivered "Lookin' For A Woman," but it didn't make the cut. When Earle started working on his album So You Wannabe An Outlaw, he started with the two songs he wrote for the show.
  • Directed by Cody Ground, the video combines footage of him performing at Continental Club in Austin with shots of him wandering around New York, where he lives.
