lyricist: Lewis Allan
composer: Lewis Allan

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
Bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias, so sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh

Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, and the trees to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop
