INTRO: E F#m Abm A E B E

#1.
     E     F#m   G#m    F#m     E      F#m     G#m
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
But the fruit of the poor lemon is im..possible to eat.

#2.
E            F#m   G#m      F#m     E        F#m   G#m
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
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
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.
