B.B. King – When Love Comes To Town lyrics
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

I was a sailor, I was lost in sea
I was under the waves, before love rescued me
I was a fighter I could turn on a threat
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,
But I left her standing before love came to town.

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

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 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.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah...
