Strange Fruit

(Lewis Allen)

Intro: Am G/B E7 Am Em7 Am Am G/B E7 Am Em7 Am  

Am       Em7   Am  A9  Am     E7 
Southern trees bear a strange fruit 
Am            Em7        Am  A9  Am   E7 
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root  
Bm5-/7                E7/9-             Fdim        E7 
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze 
Am            Em7             Asus4  A9  Am 
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees 

Interlúde: Am  G/B E7  Am Em7 Am  

Am       Em7          Am A9  Am    E7 
Pastoral scene of the gallant    south  
    Am      Em7          Fdim     E7 
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth 
Am             Em7 Bm5-/7 Em7   A9   Am E7 
Smell of magnolia,          sweet and fresh    
        E7/9-  Bm5-/7       Fdim     E7 
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh 
Am          Am7+          Dm   Dm7  E7 
Here is the fruit for the crows to pluck 
        Am       E7             Gdim F   E7 
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck 
Em5-/7    A      A7M          Gdim Fdim E7   
For   the sun to rot, for the tree  to drop 
Am   A9 Am  E7   Bm5-/7 Em5-/7  E7 Am 
Here is a strange  and    bitter     crop
