Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
It's not warm when she's away;
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
And she's always gone too long,
Anytime she goes away.

Wonder this time where she's gone,
Wonder if she's gone to stay;
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
She's always gone too long,
Anytime she goes away.

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.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
Only darkness every day;
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
This house just ain't a home,
Anytime she goes away.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
It's not warm when she's away;
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
And she's always gone too long,
Anytime she goes away.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
It's not warm when she's away;
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
And she's always gone too long,
Anytime she goes away....
Anytime she goes away....
Anytime she goes away....
Anytime she goes away....
Anytime she goes away.

####.... William Harrison (Bill) Withers, Jr (b.1938 in Slab Fork, West Virginia), American singer-songwriter and musician who performed and recorded from 1970 until 1985 ....####
Originally recorded in 1971 by Bill Withers as the B-side to another song called Harlem; disc jockeys played it as the single instead and it became a huge hit, Withers' first. Also recorded on Withers' debut studio album (Just As I Am, trk#3, 1971 LP, Sussex Records (1969-1975), recorded at Sunset Sound, Hollywood, California, produced by Booker T Jones); and (Just As I Am & Still Bill [1972], original recording remastered, trk#2, 2003 CD, Raven Records, Australia).

This song is ranked number 280 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, and won the Grammy for Best Rhythm and Blues Song in 1972.

The video above features a live cover performance by Jacinda Beals and Hal Collishaw at The C-Flat Sessions #5 in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador, May 2011.
