Lemon Tree   (Riverboat 601)   Ko Iwata, Koji Harai
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me
"Come here and take a lesson from the lovely lemon tree"

Allemande left your corner, go
Come back and dosado, allemande left again
Weave the ring along the lane
Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet
Swing your girl, pretty little taw
Promenade, go 'round, you know
Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*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


*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


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) couples promenade halfway 'round the cave
Down the middle dixie style to an ocean wave
Center boys trade, all extend
Left swing thru, girls run left, bend the line
Flutter wheel across and slide thru
Swing your corner girl and promenade the ring
Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat
