     G     D      G              G      D       G
When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me,
      G        D      C                      D     G
"Come here and take a lesson from the lovely lemon tree.
      C        G        F       C               G       C
Don't put your faith in love my boy," my father said to me.
   C           G         F       G        F      G     C
"I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely lemon tree."

D7    G     C    G       C       G     C         D
Lemon tree, very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet,
        D                            D           G
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
      G     C    G       C       G     C         D
Lemon tree, very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet,
        C     D                      C    D7     G
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

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



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