When Love Comes To Town Lyrics

"When Love Comes To Town" (live from Point Depot)

"I asked Bono if he would write a song for me and he said yes. About a year later, the group was touring in the US and asked if I would open the show, and I said gladly. Bono said, ' I have this song for you.' He brought it out and I thought it was a very deep song for him, being such a young man. But I liked it very much. The lyrics were very heavy... Blues is not prejudiced. You can be any colour to play the blues. Most people say it's a simple music, I won't argue that. I say everybody can play it, but that doesn't mean everybody's gonna like it. I think U2 did a very good job. I thought it was great and I still do." - BB King, Uncut

Hey yeah, hey yeah
Hey yeah, hey yeah
Rosie and a love made out of Lovetown
Blues monster, Mr. BB King

I was a sailor, I was lost at sea
I was under the waves before love rescued me
A prize fighter, I could turn on a thread
Now I stand accused of the things I've said

When love comes to town I'm gonna jump that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town

Used to make love under a red sunset
I was making promises I was soon to forget
She was pale as the lace of her wedding gown
I left her standing before love came to town
I ran into a juke joint, I heard a guitar scream
Notes were turning blue, I was fell into a dream
BB King played guitar, my life turned around
That was the day before love came to town

Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

I was there when they crucified my Lord
I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword
I threw the dice when the pierced his side
But I've seen love conquer the great divide

When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town

Hold up, BB King
BB, he might have invented the blues but BB King, he also got a cure for the blues.
My cure for the blues in the 1990s? It's love. Enough love to make you wanna go out and help somebody. Do you have enough love to wanna go out and help somebody? Do you have enough love to not want to hurt somebody? Then we spell it: L-O-V-E.

When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that train
When love comes to town I'm gonna catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did before love came to town
