Dry County  by Bon Jovi
------
Intro
------
Verse I :

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 saviour   
In these hard and desperate times   
For me it helps me to forget   
That we're just born to die  
-----
main
-----
Verse II:

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

-------------
pre-pre-CHorus:

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   
I packed up on my wife and kid   
And left them back at home  
see there's nothing in this paydirt   
The ghosts are all I know   

----------
Pre-Chorus:

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

-------
Chorus:
  
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  

--------
Main 
--------
--------
Verse III:

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

------------
Pre-Pre-Chorus II:

I cursed the sky to open   
I begged the clouds for rain   
I prayed to God 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  

--------------
Pre-Chorus:

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

Verse IV:

Men spend their whole lives   
Waiting praying for their big reward   
But it seems sometimes   
The payoff leaves you feeling   
Like a dirty whore   
If I could choose the way I'll die   
Make it by the gun or knife   
'Cause the other way there's too much pain   
Night after night after night

ur right, it is the most amazing song, with the best solo and most complicated solo i have ever heard a guitarist create. Richie's talent is awesome, i just hope one day i can play this song :D I think il stick to their easier ones for the time being :)

Oh and it looks like a great tab, much more accurate than the others, il give it a go.

In the main intro, i think it begins with a note on the D string, the same fret above G, if you get me. I think its missing a note at the very beggining.

I will give you a 1, because you put this tab into the comments page of Metallica's "Enter Sandman", and that was the most idiodic thing I've ever seen a person do.
