For want of a nail nursery rhyme dates all the way back to the 14th century, and it has been used in generations – in both UK and US. There are different variations of the proverb going around; the first mention of it was related to the King Richard III’s death during the Battle of Bosworth. The story was illustrated in William Shakespeare’s history play Richard III, dating back to around 1591.
Lyrics To “For Want Of A Nail”
For want of a nail the shoe was lost
For want of a shoe the horse was lost
For want of a horse the rider was lost
For want of a rider the battle was lost
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail
