Using the "Strange Fruit" Poem
As a backdrop
Producer: marco vman@baymoon.com
Uploaded by: marco betweenthelines@snet.net
Em
Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
Am Em
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Em
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Am (B)(C)(Gb) Em
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.


Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolia, sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.

Here is a fruit for the crow 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.
