​Drivin' Nails In My Coffin

This song is by The Wilburn Brothers and appears on the album I'm Gonna Tie One On Tonight (1965).

My sweetheart has gone and 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 drivin' those nails over you
(Steel)
Ever since the day that we've parted I've been so sad and so blue
I'm always thinking of your love and I just can't stop drinkin' that old booze
I'm just drivin' nails...
(Guitar)
Now you've turned me down you don't want me there's nothing more I can lose
I'm drivin' nails in my coffin worryin' sweetheart over you
I'm just drivin' nails...
