Strange Fruit  AaRON

(words & music Abel Meeropol)
Standard tuning: EADGBE
(Piano arranged for guitar)
[Bm] Southern trees[A] [G]
Bearing strang[F#]e fruit
[Bm] Blood on the leaves[A] [G]
And blood at the [F#]root
[Em] Black bodies swinging in the southern bree[Bm]ze[A]
[G]Strange fruit hanging[F#] from the po[Bm]plar trees[A] [G] [F#]
[Em] Pastoral scene [Bm]of the gallow [A]south[G] [F#]
[Em] And the bulging eyes[E] and the twisted mouth
[Bm] The scent [A]of magnolia[G] sweet and [F#]fresh
[Em] Then the sudden smell [Bm]of [A] [G] [F#]burning flesh[Bm] [A] [G] [F#]
[Bm] Here is a fruit[A] [G]for the crows to [F#]pluck
[Em] For the rain to gather
[Em] For the wind to suck
[Em] For the sun to rot
[Em] For the trees [Bm] [A] [G] [F#]to drop
[Bm] Here is a stra[A]nge [G] and bitte[F#]r crop[Bm]
