"He'll Have to Go" has been covered by many artists. Elvis Presley recorded his version of "He'll Have to Go" on October 31, 1976, at his last known studio recording session; it is believed to be the final song he ever recorded in a studio setting.
The song prompted the answer song "He'll Have to Stay" by Jeanne Black. Her song reached No. 6 on the Billboard Hot C&W Sides chart and No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 later in 1960. Skeeter Davis made a cover of it in 1961. "He'll Have to Stay" also got an answer song: "I'm Gonna Stay". It was recorded by Johnny Scoggins and released on the single Fraternity Records 869.
This song was also done by Solomon Burke in 1965/66(c) on the Soul chart. It was one of his biggest hits.
Harry James recorded a version on the 1966 album Harry James & His Western Friends (Dot DLP 3735 and DLP 25735).
Ry Cooder covered the song on his 1976 album Chicken Skin Music.
Anne Murray, Connie Francis, Mary Ford, Jerry Lee Lewis, Nat King Cole and Tom Jones have recorded versions of the song.
