Lemon Tree

Will Holt

 DA7DA7D
When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me,
 A7DA7D
"Come here and take a lesson from the lovely lemon tree."

"Don't put your faith in love, my boy," my father said to me,
 D7GD7G
"I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely lemon tree."

Chorus:
 DA7
     Lemon tree, very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet,
 D
     But the fruit of the lemon is impossible to eat.
 DA7
     Lemon tree, very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet,
 D
     But the fruit of the lemon is impossible to eat.

One day beneath the lemon tree, my love and I did lie,
A girl so sweet that when she smiled, the stars rose in the sky.
We passed that summer lost in love, beneath the lemon tree,
The music of her laughter hid my father's words from me.

Chorus.

One day she left without a word, she took away the sun.
And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done.
She left me for another, it's a common tale but true,
A sadder man, but wiser now, I sing these words to you.

Chorus.
