Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit Lyrics

  • Lewis allen
  • Southern trees bear strange fruit,
  • Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
  • Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
  • Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.
  • Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
  • The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
  • Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
  • Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.
  • Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
  • For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
  • For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
  • Here is a strange and bitter crop.
