Merle Haggard's Son Covers "Sing Me Back Home" (WATCH)

Merle haggard Songs | Merle Haggard's Son Covers

Like father, like son. We have another amazing cover by Merle Haggard's son, Ben Haggard! Ben sings a beautiful rendition of one of his father's classic songs, "Sing Me Back Home". 

In 1967 Merle released his song "Sing Me Back Home", off of his album with the same title, Sing Me Back Home. The track was a huge sensation, and spent two weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. Great job Merle, this song is great!

As a tribute to his talented father, Ben covered this classic, chart-topping song. Ben's version of the song was released on the 2014 album, Working Man's Poet - A Tribute To Merle Haggard, which included covers of Merle's hit songs by an array of talented artists.

Ben does an amazing job following in his father's footsteps. His talent shines through this song, and Merle must be so proud!  

Watch the video to hear Ben Haggard's rendition of his father's classic, "Sing Me Back Home".


The warden led a prisoner down the hallway to his doom
I stood up to say good-bye like all the rest
And I heard him tell the warden just before he reached my cell
'Let my guitar playing friend do my request.' (Let him...)

Sing me back home with a song I used to hear
Make my old memories come alive
Take me away and turn back the years
Sing Me Back Home before I die

I recall last Sunday morning a choir from 'cross the street
Came to sing a few old gospel songs
And I heard him tell the singers 'There's a song my mama sang.
Can I hear once before we move along?'

Sing me back home, the song my mama sang
Make my old memories come alive
Take me away and turn back the years
Sing Me Back Home before I die

Sing Me Back Home before I die
