The United States of America —commonly referred to as the
Producer Jerry Wexler had come across Redding's song and brought it to Franklin's attention. Gerald "Jerry" Wexler ( January 10 1917 &ndash August 15 2008) was a music journalist turned music producer and was regarded While Redding's version was popular among his core R&B audience, Wexler thought the song had potential to be a crossover hit and demonstrate Franklin's vocal ability.

The confusion seems to have arisen from the fact that the entire sequence was an ad-lib by Franklin, not present in Redding's original song.  Thus, for that sequence, there were no official written lyrics to quote, and those transcribing the lyrics would have had to take their "best guess" as to the words being sung.
"TCB" is an abbreviation that was commonly used in the 1960s and 1970s, meaning "Taking Care of Business", and it was particularly widely used in African-American culture.
