Intro:  Am  Em  G (x2)

Verse 1:
(n.c)                         Am    Em  G
 Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
Am        Em   G            Am   Em  G
 It's not warm when she's a-way.
Am        Em       G          Em7
 Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
          Ebm7            Dm7
And she's always gone too long,
                   Am   Em  G, Am
Anytime she goes a-way.

Verse 2:
Am      Em        G           Am   Em  G
 Wonder this time where she's gone,
Am      Em       G       Am   Em   G
 Wonder if she's gone to stay.
Am        Em       G          Em7
 Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
                    Ebm7     Dm7
And this house just ain't no home,
                   Am   Em  G
Anytime she goes a-way.

Break:
Am (n.c)
 And I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know...

(n.c)
 Hey, I oughta leave young thing alone,
                                 Am    Em  G
But ain't no sunshine when she's gone.

Verse 3:
Am    Em       G     Am   Em  G 
 Only darkness every-day.
Am        Em       G          Em7
 Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
                    Ebm7     Dm7
And this house just ain't no home,
                   Am   Em  G
Anytime she goes a-way.

Coda:
Am   Em    G          Am   Em  G
 Any-time, she goes a-way,
Am   Em    G          Am   Em  G
 Any-time, she goes a-way,
Am   Em    G          Am   Em  G, Am
 Any-time, she goes a-way.
