We already knew that Merle Haggard's son, Ben Haggard, was incredibly talented, but his cover of his father's hit song, "Leaving's Not The Only Way To Go", was extra amazing!!

"Leaving's Not The Only Way To Go" was released in 2005, off of Merle's album, Chicago Wind. The emotional song tells the story of a man who is trying to convince his love to stay with him. He tells her that no matter what life throws in her path, "Leaving's not the only way to go". Sometimes we need to face the obstacles life hands us head-on, and Merle reminds us, "It all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know". Thank you for the wise words, Merle!

We absolutely love Ben's covers of his father's songs. You can just hear the passion and the pride in his voice, and it is so touching! The 21-year-old is definitely following in his father's footsteps, and Merle must be so unbelievably proud. 

Check out the video to hear Ben Haggard cover his father's song, "Leaving's Not The Only Way To Go", and you'll be glad you did!

Do the mornin's still come early, are the nights not long enough?
Does a tear of hesitation fall on everything you touch?
Well, it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

Maybe lyin' at your feelin's, grow accustomed to the dark
By mornin's light, it just might solve the problems of the heart
And it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

People reach new understandings all the time
Take a second look, maybe change their minds
People reach new understandings every day
Tell me not to reach, babe, and I'll go away

But do the mornin's still come early, are the nights not long enough?
Does a tear of hesitation fall on everything you touch?
Well, it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go

People reach new understandings all the time
Take a second look, maybe change their minds
People reach new understandings every day
Tell me not to reach, babe, and I'll go away

But do the mornin's still come early, are the nights not long enough?
Does a tear of hesitation fall on everything you touch?
Well, it all might be a lesson for the hasty heart to know
Maybe leavin's not the only way to go
