Dry County

Year: 1992 - Album: Keep the Faith

  		Intro:  Dm  C   Am  Bb Dm  C   Am  Gm/Bb
       Dm         C
       Across the border they turn
       Am         G
       Water into wine
       Dm                C
       Some say it's the devil's blood
               G                  Dm
       They're squeezing from the vine
       Dm              C
       Some say it's a saviour
                Am                 Bb
       In these hard and desperate times
           Dm             C
       For me it helps me to forget
            G                     Dm  C  Am  Bb 
       That we're just born... to die
         Dm            C
       I came here like so many did
          Am              Bb
       To find the better life
          Dm               C
       To find my piece of easy street
          G          Dm
       To finally be alive
              Dm                 C 
       I knew nothing good comes easy
           Am                    G
       All good things take some time
         Dm               C
       I made my bed I'll lie in it
          G               Dm
       To die in it's the crime
       F
       You can't help but prosper
                 Gm/Bb
       Where the streets are paved with gold
                    C
       they say the oil wells ran depper here
            Bb/D
       Than anybody's known
             F 
       Now I packed up on my wife and kid
           Gm/Bb
       And left them back at home
                   C
       Now there's nothing in this paydirt
           Bb
       The ghosts are all I know
               Dm
       Now the oil's gone
           Dm/C
       And the money's gone
           Dm/G
       All the jobs are gone
                   Bb         C
       still we're hangin' on down in
       F   
       Dry county
               C
       They're swimming in the sand
               Bb
       Praying for some holy water
          Gm                 Bb
       to wash the sins from off our hands in
       F
       Dry county
           C
       The promise has run dry
       Bb
       Where nobody cries
           Bb                           Dm  C  Am  Bb 
       And no one's getting out of here alive
              Dm              C
       In the blessed name of Jesus
         Am               Bb
       I heard a preacher say
            Dm               C
       That we are all God's children
            G                 Dm
       And that he'd be back, back someday
             Dm                 C
       And I hoped that he knew something 
             Am               Bb
       As he drank his cup of wine
              Dm              C
       Didn't have too good a feeling 
            G               Dm
       As I head out to the night
         F
       I cursed the sky to open
         Gm/Bb
       I begged the clouds for rain
         C
       I prayed to God for water
                Bb/D
       For this burning in my viens
              F
       It was like my soul's on fire
             Gm/Bb
       And I had to watch the flames
              C
       All my dreams went up in ashes
              Bb
       And my future blew away
           Dm
       Now the oil's gone
           Dm/C
       And the money's gone
           Dm/G
       All the jobs are gone
                Bb       C
       Still we carry on down in
       F   
       Dry county
               C
       They're swimming in the sand
               Bb
       Praying for some holy water
          Gm                 Bb
       to wash the sins from off our hands in
       F
       Dry county
           C
       The promise has run dry
       Bb
       Where nobody cries
       Bb                               F
       And no one's getting out of here alive
       (Solo)
           Dm                      C
       Men spend thier whole lives waiting
               Am           Bb
       Praying for some big reward
          Dm
       It seems sometimes
           C                 G
       The payoff leaves you feeling
              Dm
       Like a dirty whore
          Dm             C
       If I could choose the way I'll die
               Am            Bb
       Make it by the gun or knife
                  Dm                C
       'Cause the other way there's too much pain
       G
       Night after night after night
               F   
       Down in Dry county
               C
       They're swimming in the sand
               Bb
       Praying for some holy water
          Gm                 Bb
       to wash the sins from off our hands in
       F
       Dry county
           C
       The promise has run dry
       Bb
       Where nobody cries
       Bb                               Dm   C   Am  Bb
       And no one's getting out of here alive
