Tammy Wynette & 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…
