"I'll take you there" as written by and Alvertis Isbell....
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)

    General CommentThis has been my favorite song at different times, but I'd never really thought too deeply about the words. I just figured that the "there" meant heaven or some place like that, but the "Ain't no smilin' faces" was always confusing for a moment if I noticed it. I _finally_ realized that it's "Ain't no smilin' faces_lyin' to the races_," meaning "Ain't no smiling faces lying like crazy" in a "Smiling Faces Sometimes" kind of way (see song by the Undisputed Truth). And I'm loving this song all over again because that one line just about sums up what heaven would be to me. That and the song is pretty close to heaven itself. :)
