Lyrics Dry County

'Cross 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 and finally be alive
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 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 hanging on
Down in Dry County
They're swimming in the sand
Praying for some holy water
To wash these sins from off our hands
In Dry County the promise has run dry
Where nobody cries
And no one is getting out of here alive
Not this time
In the blessed name of Jesus
I heard a preacher say
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 of 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 hanging on
Down in Dry County
They're swimming in the sand
Praying for some holy water
To wash these sins from off our hands
In Dry County the promise has run dry
Where nobody cries
And no one is getting out of here alive
A man spends his whole life waiting
Praying for some big reward
But it seems sometimes that payoff leaves you feeling like a dirty whore
If I could choose the way I'd die make it by the gun or knife 'cos the other way there's too much pain
Night after night after night after night
Oh down in Dry County
They're swimming in the sand
Praying for some holy water
To wash these sins from off our hands
In Dry County the promise has run dry
Where nobody cries
And no one is getting out of here
Dry County
No one is getting out of here
Dry County
No
