Drivin' Nails in My Coffin
Written by Jerry Irby




My sweetheart is gone and I'm so lonely,
She said that she and I were through,
So I started out drinkin' for pastime,
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,
Drivin' those nails over you.


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


You turned me down, you don't want me,
There's nothin' now I can lose,
I'm just drivin' those nails in my coffin,
An' worryin', my darlin', over you.
