In Nelson's autobiography Willie , Glaser stated, "Everybody rushed out to buy the Outlaws album: rock and rollers, kids, lockjaw types from the East , people who'd never bought a country album in their whole lives bought that album Ultimately, I think the outlaw movement or publicity or gimmick or whatever you want to call it did a great thing for country music as a whole, because it opened the way for different styles. Although many of the songs included on Wanted: The Outlaws were several years old and featured a plethora of producers, the unifying outlaw theme gave the album a cohesion and freshness it might have otherwise lacked.
Although the album was predominately upbeat, it begins with the brooding " My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys ," which as much laments the loneliness of outlaw life as much as it celebrates the freedom of it. In the audio version of his autobiography, Jennings confessed, "It was an oddly downbeat way to start an album, but it seemed to sum up the frontier loneliness that often came hand-in-hand with our ideas of rugged individualism.
Jennings also sings Billy Joe Shavers's "Honky Tonk Heroes," the title cut from his classic LP about a "lovable loser" and "no account boozer" who "danced holes" in his shoes. Nostalgic themes are also found in Nelson's " Yesterday's Wine ," the title track from his concept album of the same name. Nelson's other solo track, "Me and Paul," which also appeared on the Yesterday's Wine album, seemed to echo the outlaw ethos with its tales of suspicious cops, drug busts and lines like, "We'd come to play and not just for the ride.
Jennings' and Colter's duet on "Suspicious Minds" had originally been released in ; at that time the song peaked at 25 on the Billboard country singles chart but, upon its rerelease in , shot up to 2. Largely written by Jennings, it had served as the title track of his album and had also been recorded by Nelson for his LP The Words Don't Fit the Picture , also released that same year. According to Joe Nick Patoski's memoir Willie Nelson , the live performance of "Good Hearted Woman" on Wanted: The Outlaws was recorded at Geno McCoslin's Western Place in Dallas , although there has been speculation that the track was a studio creation because of what appears to be canned audience applause.
In reality, Nelson's vocal was overdubbed onto the edited track, which appeared in its original form on Jennings' live album Waylon Live.

Reduced to a state of zombification much like Leo Johnson in Twin Peaks , his niece takes to dressing up the former serial rapist in pretty clothes and enjoying her baby — until she catches a glimpse that the monster still lurks within. Then it got to where every time I spun around quick, his eyes were on me, and not on my face neither. The writing is sumptuous, the imagery profound, the narrative arcs oblique, thoughtful and challenging.
