Am       Em       G          Am       Em  G  Am
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone 
         Em        G       Am         Em  G  Am
It's not warm when she's away. 
                             Dm
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
                          C 
And she's always gone too long


Em      G          Am                 Em  G  Am 
Anytime she goes away. 
       Em        G           Am       Em  G  Am
Wonder this time where she's gone 
       Em       G       Am            Em  G  Am
Wonder if she's gone to stay 
                             Dm
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
                             C 
And this house just ain't no home
Em      G          Am 
Anytime she goes away. 


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, 


Hey, I oughtta leave young thing alone
             Em       G          Am 
But ain't no sunshine when she's gone 
 

         Em       G          Am            Em  G  Am
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone 
     Em       G     Am                     Em  G  Am
Only darkness every day. 
                             Dm
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
                             C
And this house just ain't no home
Em      G        Am 
Anytime she goes away. 
Em      G        Am 
Anytime she goes away. 
Em      G        Am 
Anytime she goes away.
Em      G        Am  
Anytime she goes away.

  1. I like -7 on the transposer

  2. What can I do during the “I know” part? Strumming doesn’t seem right, mute strumming doesn’t sound right, tapping/beating doesn’t sound right, and playing nothing doesn’t sound right either. can anyone help me out on this? Thanks.

  3. Bobbe Marshall

    I changed Em to Em7. So Am Em7 G Am etc.
    I also replaced the C (gone too long) with an Am.

  4. That C just doesn’t sound like it’s right – anyone else have a better idea?

  5. Christopher Belluzzi

    I play E7 (gone)
    G (long)
    And E (time) as an alternative way of doing it.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
