Bill Withers – Ain’t No Sunshine

Bill Withers in 1971, playing “Ain’t No Sunshine”

Lyrics :

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
And this house just ain’t no home
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
But ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
Only darkness every day
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
And this house just ain’t no home
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away

bill withers Aint No Sunshine

Biography :

Young Withers :
His songs speak for themselves. “Ain’t No Sunshine,” became a signature theme for American Idol champion Kris Allen who performed it on the show’s 2009 season finale while Britain’s Got Talent competitor Shaun Smith’s rendition of the song propelled Withers’ 1971 original back onto the UK charts. Mary J. Blige‘s version of “Lean on Me” echoed in Washington D.C.’s Lincoln Memorial at the “We Are One” pre-inaugural festivities for president Barack Obama, just as Withers’ words had similarly honored president Bill Clinton. Commercial uses, including the Gap Khaki Soul campaign featuring “Lovely Day,” match the music to new markets. Jimmy Buffett’s License to Chill included two new Withers’ songs; Vanessa Williams covered Bill’s “Hello Like Before” on her latest Concord Records’ release; George Benson and Lalah Hathaway’s duet on “Telephone Call Away” revealed a newly-penned Withers song for Benson’s Songs and Stories; and in 2011, the lead single of Jill Scott’s The Original Jill Scott from the Vault, Vol. 1 is a cover of Withers’ “Lovely Day” produced by DJ Jazzy Jeff.
