Strange Fruit
(words & music Abel Meeropol)

Standard tuning: EADGBE
(Piano arranged for guitar)

Bm A G Southern trees
F# Bearing strange fruit
Bm A G Blood on the leaves
F# And blood at the root
Em Bm A Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
G F# Bm A G F# Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees
Em Bm A G F# Pastoral scene of the gallow south
Em E And the bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
Bm A G F# The scent of magnolia sweet and fresh
Em Bm A G F# Bm A G F# Then the sudden smell of burning flesh
Bm A G F# Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
Em For the rain to gather
Em For the wind to suck
Em For the sun to rot
Em Bm A G F# For the trees to drop
Bm A G F# Bm Here is a strange and bitter crop
