      About "Tear My Stillhouse Down"

      Lyrics for Gillian Welch - "Tear My Stillhouse Down"

      Put no stone at my head, no flowers on my tomb
      No gold plated sign in a marble pillared room
      The one thing I want when they lay me in the ground

      [Chorus]
      When I die tear my stillhouse down
      Oh tear my stillhouse down, let it go to rust
      Don't leave no trace of the hiding place
      Where I made that evil stuff

      For all my time and money no profit did I see
      That old copper kettle was the death of me
      When I was a child way back in the hills
      I laughed at the men who tended those stills
      But that old mountain shine, it caught me somehow

      [Chorus]

      For all my time and money no profit did I see
      That old copper kettle was the death of me
      Oh tell all your children that Hell ain't no dream
      'Cause Satan he lives in my whisky machine
      And in my time of dying I know where I'm bound

      [Chorus]

      For all my time and money no profit did I see
      That old copper kettle was the death of me
