BILL WITHERS (1971) - Ain't No Sunshine

 

When I heard the news that day

I felt a tear well in my eyes

The Beale Street Blues boy's passed away

And though I'm saddened by his demise

The saddest of all is

The thrill is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

Lucille won't sing no more

And the King is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

She'll sit there all alone knowing there's no-one that can fill his shoes

And it's not just her tears falling

The whole music world's got the blues

And the saddest of all is

The thrill is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

Lucille won't sing no more

And the King is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

 

instrumental Break

He won't hold her in his hands

There's lonely silence in her strings

2 line Break for sad wailing guitar

And the saddest of all is

The thrill is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

Lucille won't sing no more

And the King is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

The thrill is gone

Lucille won't sing no more

Lucille won't sing no more

And the King is gone

Lucille won't sing no more
