  • A "Dry County" is a county that prohibits alcohol, but in the context of this song, it's a county that was rich with oil, but the wells have dried up. Like many of fellow New Jersey music icon Bruce Springsteen's songs, this tells the story of someone trapped in a run-down town, yearning for a better life.
  • This is the longest Bon Jovi song - it runs 9:52. A shorter 6-minute version was released as a single in the UK peaking at #9. >>

  • Beverley from JohannesburgThis is my ultimate Bon Jovi song, followed closely by "Someday I'll be Saturday Night."
  • Ammon from Houston, TxThis is one of my favorite Bon Jovi songs, and the solo proves that Sambora is up there with the other Guitar Heros of the 80's.
  • Jessica from Oxford, United KingdomThis song is the most amazing song ever and i'm suprised it's not that well known!
  • Jamie from Limerick, IrelandA song which surprasses any other jovi work by horizons
