Ernest Tubb performs "Drivin' Nails in my Coffin"

Ernest Dale Tubb (February 9, 1914 – September 6, 1984), nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, was an American singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of country music. His biggest career hit song, "Walking the Floor Over You" (1941), marked the rise of the honky tonk style of music. In 1948, he was the first singer to record a hit version of Billy Hayes and Jay W. Johnson's "Blue Christmas", a song more commonly associated with Elvis Presley and his late-1950s version. Another well-known Tubb hit was "Waltz Across Texas" (1965) (written by his nephew Quanah Talmadge Tubb, known professionally as Billy Talmadge), which became one of his most requested songs and is often used in dance halls throughout Texas during waltz lessons. Tubb recorded duets with the then up-and-coming Loretta Lynn in the early 1960s, including their hit "Sweet Thang". Tubb is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Ernest Tubb - 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 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

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

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
