Across the border they turn water into wine
They're squeezing from the vine
In these hard and desperate times
To die
I came here like so many did to find a better life
To finally be alive
All good things take some time
To die in it's the crime
You can't help but prosper
They say the oil wells ran deeper here than anybody's known
And left them both back at home
The ghosts are all I know
Now the oil's gone
All the jobs are gone

They're swimming in the sand
To wash the sins from off our hands
The promise has run dry
And no one's getting out of here alive (Not this time)
"In the blessed name of Jesus" I heard a preacher say
And He'd be back, back someday
I didn't have too good a feeling as I head out to the night
I cursed the sky to open
I prayed all night for water
It was like my soul's on fire
All my dreams went up in ashes

And the money's gone
Still we're hangin' on
Down in dry county
Praying for some holy water
Here in dry county
Where nobody cries

Prayin' for some big reward
Leaves you feeling like a dirty whore
Make it by the gun or knife
Night after night after night after night
Down in dry county
Praying for some holy water
In dry county
Where nobody cries
Dry county
Dry county
