      About "Dry County"

      Lyrics for Bon Jovi - "Dry County"

      Across the border they turn water into wine
      Some say it's the devil's blood
      They're squeezing from the vine
      Some say it's a savior
      In these hard and desperate times
      You see it helps me to forget that we're just born
      To die

      I came here like so many did to find a better life
      To find my piece of easy street
      To finally be alive
      And I know nothing good comes easy
      All good things take some time
      I made my bed I'll lie in it
      To die in it's the crime

      You can't help but prosper
      Where the streets are paved with gold
      They say the oil wells ran deeper here than anybody's known
      Now I packed up on my wife and kid
      And left them both back at home
      See there's nothing in this pay dirt
      The ghosts are all I know

      Now the oil's gone
      And the money's gone
      All the jobs are gone
      Still we're hangin' on

      Down in dry county
      They're swimming in the sand
      Praying for some holy water
      To wash the sins from off our hands
      Here in dry county
      The promise has run dry
      Where nobody cries
      And no one's getting out of here alive (Not this time)

      "In the blessed name of Jesus" I heard a preacher say
      That we are all God's children
      And He'd be back, back someday
      I hoped that he knew something as he drank that cup of wine
      I didn't have too good a feeling as I head out to the night

      I cursed the sky to open
      I begged the clouds for rain
      I prayed all night for water
      For this burning in my veins
      It was like my soul's on fire
      And I had to watch the flames
      All my dreams went up in ashes
      And my future blew away

      Now the oil's gone
      And the money's gone
      All the jobs are gone
      Still we're hangin' on

      Down in dry county
      They're swimming in the sand
      Praying for some holy water
      To wash these sins from off our hands
      Here in dry county
      The promise has run dry
      Where nobody cries
      And no one's getting out of here alive

      Men spend their whole lives waiting
      Prayin' for some big reward
      But it seems sometimes the payoff
      Leaves you feeling like a dirty whore
      If I could choose the way I'd die
      Make it by the gun or knife
      'Cause the other way there's too much pain
      Night after night after night after night

      Down in dry county
      Where they're swimming in the sand
      Praying for some holy water
      To wash the sins from off our hands
      In dry county
      The promise has run dry
      Where nobody cries
      No one's getting out of here
      Dry county
      And no one's getting out of here
      Dry county
