[Verse 1]

                                                Am    Em G Am
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

                                              Am    Em G Am
It's not warm when she's away

                                                   Em 
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

                                               Dm
And she's always gone too long

                                   Am    Em G Am
Anytime she goes away
 
                                                     Am        Em G Am
Wonder this time where she's gone

                                           Am      Em G Am
Wonder if she's gone to stay

                                                   Em 
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

                                                  Dm
And this house just ain't no home

                                 Am    Em G Am
Anytime she goes away
 
And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
(repeats) 

Hey, I ought to leave this young thing alone
 
[Verse 2]
                                                            Am    Em G Am
But ain't no sunshine when she's gone

                                                    Am    Em G Am
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

                                    Am    Em G Am
Only darkness every day

                                                   Em 
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

                                                  Dm
And this house just ain't no home

                                  Am    Em G Am
Anytime she goes away

                                  Am    Em G Am
Anytime she goes away

                                   Am    Em G Am
Anytime she goes away

                                    Am    Em G Am
Anytime she goes away
