When Love Comes to Town
By U2 (featuring B.B. King)


[Verse 1]
E                     A
I was a sailor, I was lost at sea
E                            A
I was under the waves before love rescued me
E                        A
I was a fighter, I could turn on a thread
E
Now I stand accused of the things I've said


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


[Verse 2]
E                         A
Used to make love under a red sunset
E                           A
I was making promises I was soon to forget
E                               A
She was pale as the lace of her wedding gown
E
But I left her standing before love came to town


[Verse 3]
E                              A
I ran into a juke joint when I heard a guitar scream
E                                  A
The notes were turning blue, I was dazing in a dream
E                            A
As the music played I saw my life turn around
E
That was the day before love came to town


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


[Verse 4] 
E                    A
When I woke up I was sleeping on the street
E                                       A
I felt the world was dancing, and I was dirt beneath their feet
E                          A
When I looked up I saw the Devil looking down
E
But my Lord He played the guitar the day love came to town


[Verse 5]
E                     A
I was there when they crucified my Lord
E                            A
I held the scabbard when the soldier drew his sword
E                          A
I threw the dice when they pierced his side
E
But I've seen love conquer the great divide


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