Lyrics by: Lewis Allen
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,
Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
HIUS 367 lynching movie featuring this song.
