George Jones - Take Me Lyrics

Take me, take me to your darkest room
Close every window and bolt every door
The very first moment I heard your voice
I'd be in darkness no more

Take me to your most barren desert
A thousand miles from the nearest sea
The very moment I saw your smile
It would be like heaven to me

There's not any mountain to rugged to climb
No desert too barren to cross
Darlin', if you would just show a sign 
Of love, I could bear any loss

Take me to Siberia
And the coldest weather of the winter time
And it would be just like spring in California
As long as I knew you were mine

There's not any mountain to rugged to climb
No desert too barren to cross
Darlin', if you would just show a sign 
Of love, I could bear any loss

Take me to Siberia
And the coldest weather of the winter time
And it would be just like spring in California
As long as I knew you were mine...

George Jones Take Me Comments
  1. Alan Stoker

    Bass player Carl Radle sitting on the couch in the background is digging it.

  2. Jim Lovejoy

    such a great leon payne song

  3. Susan Ford

    I discovered this video when i was checking out Leon's "A Poem is a Naked Person". Love it, haven't been able to get it out of mind. But what's up with the guy in the pool catching scorpions? Yeeech!

  4. Jay Johnston

    The best country singer of all time,whether you like his voice,his songs,his personality.

  5. MinA L

    A treasure.

  6. ethyncd

    one of the best versions of this one

  7. David Jay O'Brien

    Wtf is up with the scorpions?

  8. William Cunha

    What does George keep looking up at ?

  9. James Hughes

    i just want to cry

  10. Zac Easton

    can anyone make out what Possum says at the very beginning?

  11. William Cunha

    Wondering what he keeps looking at

  12. William Freemon

    Man why the fuck I got to watch a dude catch Scorpions in a goddamn empty pool while I could have watched The Possum sing his heart out in the studio ??? Poor choice Les

  13. Captain Charisma

    Wow!!! But whats with the guy in the empty pool

  14. glencoe6305

    Some stupid footage of that bug hippy.

  15. Grayson Tolliver

    This is a truly special video. I smile or cry every time I see or hear it, and I really think we're lucky that so many years after the fact we are able to see and hear such emotional experiences. There's a look in his eye that makes me feel that he and I aren't so different. So much honesty. George Jones forever. Leon forever. Thank you for posting this.

  16. TheGto389

    Wow!!!! Too awesome!

  17. lonesome danny

    Could be wrong....bjt that looks like Carl radle over jones shoulder(on the couch). The musicians in that room. Still the possum takes the cake. Rest easy possum.

    Alan Stoker

    Definitely Carl Radle

  18. Dave Keegan

    Unadorned and impromptu music is often the truest and most moving.
    This is in a class of its own though - just utterly sublime.

  19. 8angst8

    George Jones is beautiful.

  20. pat McCormick

    classic geo.

  21. kyla36

    Man he loved that woman...

  22. jakob weaver

    Best version of this song

  23. lactose

    Man. Too bad there arent more clips like this. Really raw, but his voice was perfect.. Literally !

  24. glencoe6305

    This is the Master before all the Studio junk.

  25. Hillbilly Tv

    Best voice ever will never be a nother one anywhere close to him

  26. Kay Biskerow

    gee, if more of his music sounded this way i might actually listen to him.

  27. Captain Freedom

    Came for an old country song, stayed for the hippy catching scorpions in an empty swimming pool.

  28. Opie778

    Wish this video didn't cut to some guy collecting scorpions in an empty pool.

  29. Hampshire Hills

    Possum is one of the greatest

  30. hippydippy

    Shame the video was ruined by the artsy shit. Beautiful otherwise.

  31. Lillian Butler

    My favorite country singer

  32. Mike C.

    Wow ----

  33. Rose b

    The best ever

  34. stephen lamb


  35. brendon leary

    Such a shame that this film cuts to the fellow collecting scorpions from the walls of an empty swimming pool...
    I would have much preferred to just watch the ole Possum gently sing this ode to love.


    @No Name Yet That's great man. i feel the same way about all the Hindu Gods. May the Great Lord Vishnu bless you.

    No Name Yet

    @zivkovicable Satan is not going to bless anyone. None of his false gods can do anything but kill, steal and destroy. Whatever blessing they do give they will return to you in multiple curses...bad try at being cute btw


    Darren Chapman here i was checking out a great piece of music, & you had to get your bible out and preach.

    No Name Yet

    @zivkovicable and I guarantee you George wouldn't mind. All of these old country stars had a deep respect for the Lord.

    Phil Horsley

    Even Hippies love George Jones

  36. Dylan Wylde

    Through all the rough living he did, his voice never failed him, loved him and his music,

    Mikus Aurelius

    This man would have lived to be 120 years old if he'd lived a good clean life...He would have never become No Show Jones tho...

    jakob weaver

    Excessive drinking doesnt seem to mess with your voice like drugs and smoking do

    44wetwater 44wetwater

    @jakob weaver George also done a lot of drugs , and smoked three packs a day for 50 yrs , it's nothing short of amazing he lived as long as he did , the only thing that damaged his majestical voice was the car crash in 1999.

  70. WildPhotoShooter

    What a voice, flows like silk in a gentle breeze.

    Craig Payne

    He never sounded better than just him and his guitar. Chills!!

  71. lilwyte901

    What is this from?


    It's from a lovely documentary about Leon Russell called "A Poem is Naked Person." Shot in 1974 but never released until last year. I highly recommend.


    After that dude's done collecting scorpions, what he paints on that entire swimming pool is a breathtaking masterpiece.


    Anyone know where I can watch it Online? I've had a hard look and can't find the full doc anywhere.




    Amazon is streaming it.
