Haggards låtar var ofta underligt dubbelsinniga och de texter som utgick från hans eget liv hade ofta en tendens att förhärliga den gamla, goda tiden, trots att de handlade om den tid då det – för att tala klarspråk – gick åt helvete. Haggard sjöng sig in i hjärtat hos de amerikanska arbetarna, som verkligen visste vad han menade med textrader som I ain't never been on welfare and that's one place I won't be 'cause I'll be working från låten Workin' man blues från 1969.
