Wilburn Brothers – Drivin' Nails In My Coffin lyrics

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 everytime 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...
