Lemon Tree  Peter, Paul & Mary

When [G]I was [D7]just a [G]lad of ten, my [G]father [D7]said to [G]me,
"Come [G]here and [D]take a [C]lesson from the [Am7]lovely [D]lemon [G]tree.
[G7]Don't [C]put your [Bb]faith in [C]love my boy," my father [Bb]said to [C]me.
"I [Ab7]fear you'll find that [C]love is [Am]like the [Dm]lovely [G7]lemon [C]tree."
[C7]Lemon [F]tree, very pretty, and the lemon flower is [C7]sweet,
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to [F]eat.
Lemon [Bb]tree, [F]very pretty, [Bb]and the [F]lemon [Bb]flower is [Gm7]sweet,
[C7]But the [Gm7]fruit [C7]of the poor lemon is im[C]possible to [F]eat.

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

One [G]day she [D]left with[G]out a word, she [G]took a[D]way the [G]sun.
And [G]in the [D]dark she [C]left be[D]hind, I [C]knew what [D]she had [G]done.
She [C]left me [G]for a[C]nother, it's a [C]common [G]tale but [C]true.
A [C]sadder [G]man but [F]wiser [G]now, I [F]sing these [G]words to [C]you.

The alterations I have made seem cleaner to me.
