The third single off Rattle and Hum, it features Mr B.B. King on vocals and guitar. Mr King also featured in the Rattle and Hum movie that was released to promote the album. Larry described it as a 'musical journey'.
The song is one of U2's classic collaborations with another artist, the other being their effort with Johnny Cash singing on The Wanderer from the Zooropa album.
But I've seen love conquer the great divide
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
Check out the lyrics to Heartland or Hawkmoon 269, also from Rattle and Hum. And don't forget the big hits of the blues ode that is Angel Of Harlem and the lovestruck doom of All I Want Is You.
