This is an amazing performance, and it sounds like there is yet another talented Haggard!! Marty Haggard, Merle Haggard's son, did a fantastic job covering his father's hit song, "Workin' Man Blues". 

In 1969, Merle released "Workin' Man Blues" from his album, A Portrait of Merle Haggard. This signature song became one of Merle's most well-known songs, and hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. The song was written for "American Blue-Collared working men", so we can assume that the song became so popular because so many people could relate to this feeling. 

The song tells the real-life story about the working man's life. The man in this story is proud of his work, saying he's been working his whole life and works hard everyday, but he admits it is a constant struggle. He has a large family to support, and says he's just barely getting by. He promises though, as long as "my two hands are fit to use" he will continue to work and make his family proud. 

This song pays tribute to the hard workers out there, and we thank you! 

Check out Marty Haggard's rendition of his fathers classic song, "Workin' Man Blues". Merle must be so proud of his son! 

+++++++++LYRICS BELOW+++++++++

It's a big job just gettin' by with nine kids and a wife
I been a workin' man dang near all my life
I'll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I'll drink my beer in a tavern,
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

I keep my nose on the grindstone, I work hard every day
Might get a little tired on the weekend, after I draw my pay
But I'll go back workin, come Monday morning I'm right back with the crew
I'll drink a little beer that evening,
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

Hey hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain't never been on welfare, that's one place I won't be
Cause I'll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer in a tavern
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

Sometimes I think about leaving, do a little bummin around
I wanna throw my bills out the window catch a train to another town
But I go back working I gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes
Yeah drink a little beer in a tavern,
Cry a little bit of these working man blues

Hey hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain't never been on welfare, that's one place I won't be
Cause I'll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer in a tavern
Sing a little bit of these working man blues
Yeah drink a little beer in a tavern,
Cry a little bit of these working man blues
