OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Dosado that corner girl, turn the partner by
the left

Well the four little ladies chain across, you're gonna turn them left around
Join up hands, circle left, go walking 'round that ring
Allemande that corner girl and then go forward 3
Go right, left, right, turn back one for me
Allemande the corner, come back you promenade
Lemon tree, very pretty, and the lemon flower so sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    C4, R-H lady progression

Heads square thru go 4 hands around with you
To the corner girl a dosado, it's once around for me
Curlique and then cast off 3/4 'round
Girls trade, boys run around the girl, couples circulate
Wheel and deal and then, you're gonna face that two you know
Box the gnat and swing your lady, take her hand and promenade
Lemon tree, very pretty, and the lemon flower so sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat

Lemon Tree

When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me,
"Come here and learn 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 poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

Beneath the lemon tree one day, my love and I did lie
A girl so sweet that when she smiled the sun 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:

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

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:

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

Lyrics by Will Holt.
Recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary.
