"I'll Take Care Of You" as written by and Brook Benton....
I know you've been hurt
By someone else
I can tell by the way
You carry yourself

But if you'll let me
Here's what I'll do
I'll take care of you

I loved and lost
Same as you
So you see I know
Just what you've been through

So if you'll let me
Here's what I'll do
I got to take care of you

You won't ever have to worry
You won't ever have to cry
I'll be there beside you
To dry your weeping eyes

So darlin' tell me
That you'll be true
'Cause there's no doubt in my mind
I know what I want to do

And just as sure as
One and one are two
I just got to take care of you
I'll take care of you
I'll take care of you

    General CommentComposed by Brook Benton. I believe it was first released by Bobby Bland on his 1961 proto-soul album "Two Steps From The Blues"
