    Song Lyrics / J / Jeff Buckley / Strange Fruit Lyrics
    (l.allen)
    Originally performed by billie holiday. jeff performed it live on air at kcrw's man in the moon, on january 1994.
    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
    The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth
    Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh
    Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.

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