[Am Am] Ain't no sunshine when she's gone [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]
[Am Am] It?s not warm when she's away [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]
Ain't no sunshine when she's [Em7 Em7] gone
And she?s always gone too [Dm Dm] long
Anytime she goes a[Am Am]way [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]

Wonder this time where she?s gone [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]
Wonder if she's gone to stay [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]
Ain't no sunshine when she's [Em7 Em7] gone
And this house just ain't no [Dm Dm] home
Anytime she goes a[Am Am]way [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]
[Am Am] I know I know I know I know I know I know etc

I oughtta [Am/C Am/C] leave the young thing a[Em7 Em7]lone
But there ain't no [Dm Dm] sunshine
When she's [Am Am] gone [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]
[Am Am] Ain't no sunshine when she's gone [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]

[Am Am] Only darkness everyday [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]
Ain't no sunshine when she?s [Em7 Em7] gone
And this house just ain't no [Dm Dm] home
Anytime she goes a[Am Am]way [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]
Anytime she goes away [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]
Anytime she goes away [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]
Anytime she goes away [Em7 Em7] [G G] [Am Am]

About this song

Bill Withers told Songfacts that an inspiration for this song was the 1962 movie Days of Wine and Roses . "I was watching a movie called Days Of Wine And Roses (1962) with Lee Remick and Jack Lemmon. They were both alcoholics who were alternately weak and strong. It's like going back for seconds on rat poison. Sometimes you miss things that weren't particularly good for you. It's just something that crossed my mind from watching that movie, and probably something else that happened in my life that I'm not aware of.
