“When Love Comes to Town”
U2 & B.B. King

Intro:
E             A       E
Yeah… Yeah-yeah.
Yeah… Yeah-yeah.

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

CHORUS:
A
When love comes to town, I’m gonna jump that train.
A          E                                                   A              E
When love comes to town, I’m gonna catch that flame.
E                                            A          E
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down,
E
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,
But I left her standing before love came to town.

I ran into a juke-joint when I heard a guitar scream.
The notes were turning blue, I was dazed and in a dream.
As the music played, I saw my life turn around…
That was the day before love came to town.

CHORUS (repeat)

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

CHORUS

End:
E             A       E
Yeah… Yeah-yeah.
Yeah… Yeah-yeah.
