Ooh, ooh, ooh
Memphis in June
A shady veranda under a Sunday blue sky
Memphis in June
And cousin Amanda is making a blueberry pie

I can hear the clock inside a-ticking and a-tocking
Everything is peacefully dandy
I can see ole granny cross the street still a-rocking
Watching the neighbors go by, oh

Memphis in June with sweet oleander
Blowing perfume in the air
Up jumps the moon to make it that much grander
It's paradise, brother, take my advice
Nothing's half as nice as Memphis in June

Georgia, Georgia
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Oh, I say, Georgia, Georgia, ooh yeah
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear
As moonlight through the pines

Ooh, ooh, other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

I said now, Georgia, oh Georgia
No peace I find
It's just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

I say, Georgia, ooh, Georgia
No peace, no peace I find
Just an old, sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah
Ooh-yeah

You're gonna spread your wings and away you'll fly, oh
But 'till that morning, nothin' will harm you
With daddy and mommy standin' by

Away from the city that hurts and mocks
I'm standing alone by the desolate docks
In the still and the chill of the night
I see the horizon, the great unknown
My heart has an ache it's as heavy as stone
Will the dawn coming on make it light?

I cover the waterfront
I'm watching the sea
Will the one I love be coming back to me?

I cover the waterfront
In search of my love
And I'm covered by a strlit sky above

Here am I patiently waiting, hoping and longing
Oh, how I yearn
Where are you?
Are you forgetting?
Will you remember?
Will you return?

I cover the waterfront
I'm watching the sea
Will the one I love be coming back to me?

Southern trees bear a strange fruit
Blood on the leaves
And blood at the root

Black bodies swingin'
In the Southern breeze
Strange fruit hangin'
From the poplar trees

Pastoral scene of the gallant South
The bulgin' eyes
And the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burnin' flesh

Instrumental

Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather,
For the wind to suck

For the sun to rot,
For the tree to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

Southern trees bear a strange fruit
Blood on the leaves
And blood at the root

Black bodies swingin'
In the Southern breeze
Strange fruit hangin'
From the poplar trees

Them that's got shall get
Them that's not shall lose
So the Bible said and it still is news, oh, oh
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own

Yes, the strong gets more
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don't ever make the grade, oh
Mama may have and Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own

Money, you've got lots of friends
Crowding round the door
When you're gone, and spending ends
They don't come round no more

Rich relations give
A crust of bread and such
You can help yourself
But don't take too much, oh
Mama may have and Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle
Just remember darling all the while
You belong to me

See the market place in old Algier
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember when a dream appears
You belong to me

I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too, and blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'till you're home again
You belong to me

I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too and blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'till you're home again
You belong to me

The leaves of brown came tumbling down
Remember, in September, in the rain
The sun went out just like a dying ember
That September in the rain

To every word of love I heard you whisper
The raindrops seemed to play a sweet refrain
Though spring is here, to me it's still September
That September in the rain

To every word of love I heard you whisper
The raindrops seemed to play our sweet refrain
Though spring is here, to me it is still September
That September in the rain

I can see
No matter how near you'll be
You'll never belong to me
But I can dream, can't I?
Can't I pretend
That I'm locked in the bend of your embrace?
For dreams are just like wine
And I am drunk with mine

I'm aware
My heart is a sad affair
There's much disillusion there
But I can dream, can't I?
Can't I adore you?
Although we are oceans apart
I can't make you open your heart
But I can dream, can't I?

Can't I adore you?
Although we are oceans apart
I can't make you open your heart
But I can dream, can't I?

It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

When I'm in your arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you'll only grant me the right
To hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night the nearness of you

You ain't been blue, no, no, no
You ain't been blue
'Till you've had that mood indigo
That feelin' goes stealin' down to my shoes
While I sit and sigh, "go 'long blues"

Always get that mood indigo
Since my baby said goodbye
In the evenin' when lights are low
I'm so lonesome I could cry

'Cause there's nobody who cares about me
I'm just as blue as blue could be
Always get that mood indigo
Since my baby said goodbye

Blues on my mind
Blues all around my head, ooh
Blues on my mind
Blues all around my head, ooh, yeah
Woke up this morning but I'll be better off dead, uh-huh

You ain't been blue, no, no, no
You ain't been blue
'Till you've had that mood indigo
That feelin' goes stealin' down to my shoes
While I sit and sigh, "go 'long blues"

Blues on my mind
Blues all around my head, whoo
Blues on my mind
Blues all around my head
Woke up this morning but I'll be better off dead
