Verse:
[Dm]Across the [C]border they turn
[Am]Water into [Bb]wine
[Dm]Some say it's the [C]devil's blood
They're [G]squeezing from the vine
[Dm]Some say it's a [C]saviour
In these [Am]hard and desperate [Bb]times
For [Dm]me it helps me [C]to forget
That [G]we're just born... to [Dm]die[C] [Am] [Bb]

[Dm]I came here li[C]ke so many did
To [Am]find the better [Bb]life
To [Dm]find my piece of [C]easy street
To [G]finally be alive
I knew [Dm]nothing good comes [C]easy
All [Am]good things take some [G]time
I [Dm]made my bed I'll [C]lie in it
To [G]die in it's the [Dm]crime
Bridge:
[F]You can't help but prosper
Where the [Gm]streets are paved with gold
they say the [C]oil wells ran depper here
Than [Bb]anybody's known
Now I [F]packed up on my wife and kid
And le[Gm]ft them back at home
Now there's [C]nothing in this paydirt
The [Bb]ghosts are all I know
N[Dm]ow the oil's gone
And [Dm/C]the money's gone
All [Dm/G]the jobs are gone
still we're [Bb]hangin' on [C]down in
Chorus:
[F]Dry county
They're [C]swimming in the sand
Praying [Bb]for some holy water
to [Gm]wash the sins from [Bb]off our hands in
[F]Dry county
The [C]promise has run dry
[Bb]Where nobody cries
And [Bb]no one's getting out of here [Dm]aliv[C]e [Am] [Bb] not this time

In th[Dm]e blessed name o[C]f Jesus
I [Am]heard a preacher [Bb]say
That [Dm]we are all God's [C]children
And t[G]hat he'd be back, [Dm]back someday
And I [Dm]hoped that he knew [C]something
As he [Am]drank his cup of [Bb]wine
Didn't [Dm]have too good a [C]feeling
As I [G]head out to the [Dm]night
I [F]cursed the sky to open
I [Gm]begged the clouds for rain
I [C]prayed to God for water
For this [Bb]burning in my viens
It was [F]like my soul's on fire
And I [Gm]had to watch the flames
All my [C]dreams went up in ashes
And my [Bb]future blew away
Now [Dm]the oil's gone
And [Dm]the money's gone
All [Dm]the jobs are gone
Still we [Bb]carry on [C]down in
[F]Dry county
They're [C]swimming in the sand
Praying [Bb]for some holy water
to [Gm]wash the sins from [Bb]off our hands in
[F]Dry county
The [C]promise has run dry
[Bb]Where nobody cries
[Bb]And no one's getting out of here [F]alive
