I'll Take You There
The Staple Singers Lyrics


Oh mmm I know a place
Ain't nobody cryin'
Ain't nobody worried
Ain't no smilin' faces
Mmm, no no
Lyin' to the races
Help me, come on, come on
Somebody, help me now (I'll take you there)
Help me, ya'all (I'll take you there)
Help me now (I'll take you there)
Oh! (I'll take you there)
Oh! Oh! Mercy! (I'll take you there)
Oh, let me take you there (I'll take you there)
Oh-oh! Let me take you there! (I'll take you there)
Play your, play your piano now
All right Ah do it do it
Come on now
Play on it, play on it
Daddy daddy daddy
Ooh, Lord
All right now
Baby, easy now
Now, come on, little lady
All right
Dum-dum-dum-dum
Sock it, sock it
Ah, oh, oh!
I know a place, ya'all (I'll take you there)
Ain't nobody cryin' (I'll take you there)
Ain't nobody worried (I'll take you there)
No smilin' faces (I'll take you there)
Uh-uh (lyin' to the races) (I'll take you there)
Oh, no Oh! (I'll take you there)
Oh oh oh! (I'll take you there)
Mercy now! (I'll take you there)
I'm callin' callin' callin' mercy (I'll take you there)
Mercy mercy! (I'll take you there)
Let me (I'll take you there)
Oh oh! I'll take you there (I'll take you there)

Oh yes l remember Saturday was Clean Up The House Day the Whole House okay.! Lol.!
The Kitchen,Living Room, Bathroom at the time l didn't do much l was a little girl Maybe 7 and my mother had a lot of glass in the living room her table's her lamps and a glass chess set and glass n marble ash trays and other glass items l would do the vacuuming and the Living Room my brothers would do the kitchen and bathroom we did our room together that we shared.
But my mother always made us Hot breakfast every Morning but it depend on how she felt because on Saturday she had more time to make these dishes on a Saturday like pancake beef sausage or waffle or grits eggs beef beacon or grits with cheese we stop eating pork very early in the 70's in 71 or 72 but salmon cakes too ect my mother was a Excellent Cook she did her thing in the Kitchen Home Made Cakes Pies and bread puddings rice pudding too and peach cobbler and Not Pie crust dough she made her cobbler dough from scratch it was always nice crispy golden brown and all those peaches OMG.! what wonderful memory's and good old days old school music when music was real and meant something to you . and No curse words in every .Songs.!
I miss my mother so much and today its still so hard for me because we were very close mother and daughter. l am only girl and had 5 older brothers my youngest was only 4 years older then me and two have past since but we always had good times growing up l had a Great Childhood me and my brothers but more the last 2 l remember because the others were grown like in there early to mids 20's.
But its been 11 years since my mother passed away it still hurts me everyday.
I love you ma and l can't even explain how much l miss you,..and Mothers Day just passed and we have Birthdays Coming up mine next month in July her's in August we are only one week apart in our birthday l can't tell you how hard it is for me and all the Holidays.
l have a son in his early 20's he makes Mothers Day just a little bit Happier for me.
l love my son with all my heart.❤ l don't know how l would make it without him he also misses his Grandmother he would call her Mama..its been hard for us both and my other brother's and family as well..
Sorry l went left but the song just remind me of so many happy times for me as a little girl with my mother and father really good days.

I came back from Vietnam in late 1970 and by the summer of 1972 I was working for an airline up at LAX and living in a sweet apartment in Huntington Beach, California. I remember this recording and I remember burning holes thru pair after pair of socks, dancing in the kitchen while listening to this song on my record player (Garrard turntable & Harmon Kardon amp) and knocking down (steel) cans of Coors Banquet (no Coors Light back in the day). I was home from The Nam, alive and living large.

Back from Nam. Yeah! Help me, y'all. Better this than bang bang, y'all.

That's such a fantastic story. Thank you so much! Sounds like a movie script! LOL

Bless you, Ron. I'm not a Vietnam veteran, but I can definitely understand the sentiment. I listened to a lot of old soul and R&B after my tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. I dig it, brother! <3
