Lonesome, On'ry and Mean is an album by Waylon Jennings, released on RCA Victor in 1973. It was, after Good Hearted Woman and Ladies Love Outlaws, the third in a series of albums which were to establish Jennings as one of the most prominent representatives of the country movement, reaching #8 on the country charts, with two top ten singles: "You Can Have Her" and "Pretend I Never Happened". The first album to be co-produced by Jennings himself, it allowed the singer more artistic freedom than he had been given earlier, this being the first of Jennings "outlaw" country albums. Among others, the record contains a version of Kris Kristofferson's classic "Me and Bobby McGee", as well as "Gone to Denver", a song penned in part by Johnny Cash but never recorded by him. The liner notes to the original release were written by Chet Flippo, a contributing editor to Rolling Stone. Lonesome, On'ry and Mean was re-released in 2003 with bonus tracks from the recording sessions and liner notes by Rich Kienzle. The title track was referenced by Jennings' son, Shooter Jennings, in his 2006 album Electric Rodeo in the song "Little White Lines": "Got myself in a little mess, got busted down around Abilene/I was goin' way too fast boys, feelin' lonesome, on'ry and mean".
