that is not hte song this a is a song gillian welcha nd dave rawlings wrote but never recorded it on cd i have oit on bootleg live recordings when they play it at concerts which ive heard before here are the lyrics

Dry Town
Gillian Welch & David Rawlings

Well, the road was hot and flat as a ruler
Good hundred miles between me and Missoula
That vinyl top weren't getting no cooler
So I stopped at a Quickie Sack
Cause I figure I'd need about a six of Miller
And one of them things so's I wouldn't spill 'er
So I asked the girl if the beer was in the back

She said
It's a dry town, no beer no liquor
For miles around I'd give a nickel
For a sip or two to wash me down
Out of this dry town

So I turned right around, no hesitatin'
Cursed the laws ruining the nation
Waved goodbye to the boy at the station
But she wouldn't go into gear
He said it sounds like it's your transmission
You need Bob but he's gone fishing
On his day off he gets a long way from here

She said
It's a dry town, no beer no liquor
For miles around I'd give a nickel
For a sip or two to wash me down
Out of this dry town

Well back home friends you can get a dose of
Something strong from the local grocer
I walked down 'till I come closer
To a place called Happy John's
He said I keep some for colds and fevers
Down underneath's where I usually leave 'er
But just last night I felt a cold coming on

She said
It's a dry town, no beer no liquor
For miles around I'd give a nickel
For a sip or two to wash me down
Out of this dry town

This link has chords to the song Dry Town as done by Jill Phillips ... couldn't find any chord tabs for Gillian or The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band either, who had recorded the song as well. I can't comment on the accuracy of the chords or anything else, as I am not familiar with the song, but perhaps this link will help.
