Song Lyrics

[Bono = normal, B.B. King = Italic,
Both = Bold]

I’m no good with chords, so uh
What we do is, get someone else to play chords, and…

Sure well Edge will do that
There’s not much chords in this song I think there’s only
two / Alright, yeah
I’m horrible with chords


I don’t what to do there, I’m just, I’m just on the…
Go ahead yeah, is that a joke?

I was a sailor, I was lost at sea
I was under the waves 
Before love rescued me
I was a 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

I used to make love under the red sunset
I was making promises I was soon to forget
[next 2 lines spoken]
She was pale as the lace on her wedding gown, I was scared
But I left her standing before love came to town

Ran into a juke joint when I heard a guitar scream
Notes were turning blue, I was dazing in a dream
As the music played I saw my life turn around
And that was the day before love came to town

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
Hey, yea-yeah
Hey, yea yea yeah

[Next verse spoken]
I held the scabbard when the soldier drew the sword
I threw the dice when they pierced his side
But I’ve seen love conquer the great divide

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

Thank you good night

All right, might as well go for it

Lot of emotion there man
Lot of emotion right there, that’s alright young man
That’s alright
