Song Lyrics

[Bono=Normal; BB King=_Italics_; Together=*Bold*]

Hey-yeah-yeah-yeah
Hey-yeah-yeah-yeah

Where is he?
The love mayor of Lovetown
Blues monster, Mr. B.B. King

I was a sailor, I was lost at sea
I was under the waves before love rescued me
A prizefighter I could turn on a thread, now
I stand accused of the things I’ve said

_When love come to town I’m gonna jump that train
Love come 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 until the red sunset
I was making promises I was soon to forget
She was pale as the lace of a wedding gown
I left her standing before (love came to town)

I ran into a juke joint, I heard the guitar scream
Notes were turning blue, I fell into a dream
B.B. King played guitar, my life had turned around
That was the day (when love came to town)

_When love come to town I’m gonna jump that train
Love come 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 was there when they crucified my Lord
I held the scabbard when the soldier threw his sword
I rattled the dice when they pierced his side
I’ve seen love conquer the great divide_

*When love comes to town I’m gonna jump that train
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_

When love…
B.B. King
B.B.…he might have invented the blues
But B.B. King, he also got a cure for the blues

_My cure for the blues in the 1990’s?
It’s love
Enough love to make you want to go out and help somebody
Do you have enough love to wanna go out and help somebody?
Do you have enough love to not wanna to hurt anybody?
Then we spell it…
L…O…V…E_

*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*
Love…ah

Oh no he isn’t…that was a joke
