WHEN LOVE COMES TO TOWN

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
But I stand accused of the things I've said

When love comes to town
I want to jump that train
When love comes to town
I want to 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 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

I ran unto a juke joint where 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

When love comes to town
I want to jump that train
When love comes to town
I want to catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did, before love came to town

When I woke up I was sleeping on the street
I felt the world was dancing
And I was the dirt beneath their feet
When I looked up I saw the Devil looking down
But my Lord he played to guitar the day love came to town

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

When love comes to town
I want to jump that train
When love comes to town
I want to catch that flame
Maybe I was wrong to ever let you down
But I did what I did, before love came to town
