My sweetheart has gone
And I'm so lonely
She said that she and I were through
So I started out drinkin' 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, Lord
I'm drivin' those nails over you

[ guitar ]
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
Drinking that old booze
I'm just drivin' nails in my coffin...

[ steel ]
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...
