When I was but a little boy, my father said to me,
   E    F#m   G#m   A    E   B   E E7
come here and learn a lesson, from the lovely lemon tree.
  A     Bm  C#m  Bm  A     Bm   C#m
My son, it's most impor..tant, my father said to me,
  A    Bm    C#m   D     A   E    A
to put your trust in what you feel, and not in what you see.

CHORUS:
A   D                     A
Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet,
                    A7     D
But the fruit of the poor lemon is im..possible to eat.
D                        A
Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet,
                    A7     D  B

Beneath that lemon tree one day, my love and I did lie,
 E    F#m    Ab    A      E    B   E E7
A girl so sweet that when she smiled, the sun rose in the sky.
  A     Bm   C#m   Bm  A      Bm  C#m
We spent that summer lost in love, beneath that lemon tree..
  A   Bm   C#m   D   A    E     A
the magic of her laughter hid my father's words from me.

CHORUS:
A   D                     A
Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet,
                    A7     D

Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet,
                    A7     D  B
But the fruit of the poor lemon is im..possible to eat.

#3.
  E    F#m   G#m  F#m    E   F#m   G#m
One day she left without a word..she took away the sun.
  E   F#m   G#m  A    E     B    E
And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done.
  A    Bm   C#m  Bm     A   Bm    C#m
She left me for an..other man, it's a common tale, but true.
 A   Bm   C#m  D   A     E    A
A sadder man but wiser now, I sing these words to you.

CHORUS:
A   D                     A
Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet,
                    A7     D
But the fruit of the poor lemon is im..possible to eat.
D                        A
Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet,
                    A7     D
But the fruit of the poor lemon is im..possible to eat.
