B.B. King
"When Love Comes To Town" Lyrics

album:
Ultimate Collection [2005]

genre:
-

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 threat
Now I stand accused of 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 the red sunset,
I was making promises I that were 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 as days as a little dream
As the music played I saw my life turn around,
That was the day before love came to town

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

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
