Drivin' Nails In My Coffin Lyrics

My sweetheart has gone, I'm so lonely
She said that she and I were through
So I started out drinking for past time
Drivin' nails in my coffin over you

I'm just drivin' nails in my coffin
Every time I drink a bottle of booze
I'm just drivin' nails in my coffin
Lord, I'm drivin' those nails over you

Now ever since the day that we've parted
I've been so sad and so blue
I'm always thinking of you, love
And I just can't quit drinkin' that old booze

I'm just drivin' nails in my coffin
Every time I drink a bottle of booze
I'm just drivin' nails in my coffin
Lord, I'm drivin' those nails over you

Now you've turned me down you don't want me
There's nothing now I can lose
I'm just drivin' those nails in my coffin
And worryin', my darlin', over you

I'm just drivin' nails in my coffin
Every time I drink a bottle of booze
I'm just drivin' nails in my coffin
Lord, I'm drivin' those nails over you
