Can't find my copy of the sheet music to this one. It is one of Ernie Tubb's hits. Any one got a link to it? Or even the words.

Lyrics and chords copied from the Cowpie site:

DRIVING NAILS IN MY COFFIN
(Jerry Irby)

My [C] sweetheart is gone and I'm so lonesome.
She said that she and I were [G] through.
So [C] I started out drinking for pastime,
Driving nails in my [G] coffin over [C] you.

I'm just [C] driving nails in my coffin
Every time I drink a bottle of [G] booze.
I'm just [C] driving nails in my coffin,
Driving those [G] nails over you.

Every since the day that we parted
I've felt so sad and so blue
I'm always worrying about you, love
And I just can't quit drinking that old booze.

I'm just driving nails in my coffin
Every time I drink a bottle of booze.
I'm just driving nails in my coffin,
Driving those nails over you.

[Recorded by Ernest Tubb and others.]

Here's Ernest Tubb's version (1946), copied from notes to a country music collection set released in Japan:

    DRIVIN' NAILS IN MY COFFIN

My sweetheart has 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
Lordy, driving those nails over you
Ever since the day that we parted
I've been so sad and so blue
I'm always worryin' about you, love
And I just can't quit drinkin' that old booze

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

~Masato
