DRIVIN' NAILS IN MY COFFIN
Recorded by Hank Thompson
Words and music by Jerry Irby
[C] My sweetheart is gone and I'm so lonely
She said that she and I were [G7] thru
So I [C] started out drinkin' for pastime
Drivin' Nails In My [G7] Coffin over [C] you.
I'm just Drivin' Nails In My Coffin
Ev'ry time I drink a bottle of [G7] brew
I'm just [C] Drivin' Nails In My Coffin
Lordy, drivin' those [G7] nails over [C] you.
Now ever since the day that she left me
I've been so sad and so blue
I'm always thinkin' of you, love
And I just can't quit drinkin' that old brew.
