BH Lyr Add: The House I Live In (Meeropol/Robinson) (16) RE: Lyr Add: The House I Live In 05 Jul 02

The House I Live In has music by Earl Robinson---lyrics by Lewis Allen (aka Abel Meerapol).

Lewis Allen is also the author of Strange Fruit (click).

The other interesting thing about the Sinatra film was that, unlike the Robeson version of the song--which mentions races--it leaves that out and has nothing but white children in the film with him (Sinatra)
