Al in de jaren vijftig is Mavis actief met haar familie in de Staple Singers. In 1956 scoren ze met Uncloudy day een eerste hit en al snel krijgen ze met hun gospelsound het stempel ‘God’s Greatest Hitmakers’. In 1976 scoren de Staple Singers met Let’s Do It Again hun enige hit in ons land. Ondertussen had Mavis al een aantal solo-uitstapjes gemaakt. Één van die nummers, Crying In The Chapel, wordt in 1994 opnieuw uitgebracht. Met Melody Cool, uitgebracht bij het label van Prince, staat ze in 1990 in de Tipparade. Twee jaar later staat ze daar ook met I’ll Take You There, een nummer van Bebe en Cece Winans. In 1999 is Mavis Staples opgenomen in de Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.



In 2017 brengt ze haar 16e studioalbum uit, If All I Was Was Black. In september van 2018 is ze te horen op de single Nina Cried Power, de track van Hozier.


Songtekst

Oh, oh, take me there
Sing

I know a place, y'all
Ain't nobody crying, no
Ain't nobody worried
Ain't no smiling faces
Lying to the races

I said ain't no smiling faces
No smiling faces
Lying to the races
Ain't nobody crying
No more crying

If you're ready now, oh
(Hey) come on
(I'll take you there)
Lord, have mercy
Say if you're ready
(I'll take you there)

Oh, oh (help me, help me)
(I'll take you there)
Come on (hey, hey, yeah)
I said come on
(I'll take you) play it

(Oh, Lord) play on it
Play on the keyboard (yeah)

If you're ready now (I'm ready)
I could use some guitar (me too)
Sounds good

Help me now

If you're ready now
Come on

Mavis

Oh, I, oh, I
I know a place, y'all
Ain't nobody crying
Said there ain't no
Ain't nobody crying
(Help me, help me)

I said, I said ain't no
(Ain't nobody worried)
Nobody worried
(Ain't no smiling faces)
No smiling faces
Lying to the races

Help me now
(I'll take you there)
I said if you're ready (hey)
(I'll take you there)

I said (mercy, y'all)
(I'll take you there)
Come on if you're ready
(Mercy, y'all)
(I'll take you there)

Come on
Ain't nobody crying
(Lord, have mercy)
(Come, go with me)

Let me take you there
(Lord, have mercy)
(Come, go with me)
Help me, Lord
Said mercy, mercy now
(Help me, help me)
(Let them lead the way)

Come, go, come, go with me
Are you ready now
(I'll take you there)
If you think you're ready now
(I'll take you there)

What good times, happy times
(I'll take you there)
Just take my hand and come on
(I'll take you there)

BeBe, CeCe
(I'll take you there)
Can you see it
(I'll take you there)

(Hey, hey)
Wipe the tears from your eyes
(I'm gonna take you there)
(I'll take you there)...
