Lemon Tree.


Peter Paul & Mary.

1) When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me

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

I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely Lemon Tree (chorus)



Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

but the fruit of the Lemon is impossible to eat.

Lemon Tree very pretty and the lemon flower is Sweet

but the fruit of the lemon is impossible to eat


2) 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)


3) 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'd left me for another, it's a common tale but true

A sadder man but wiser now I sing these words to you (chorus)
