When I was just a girl, my momma said to me
Come here and learn and listen from the lemon tree
Don't put your faith in love, you'll see
It's like the lemon tree

Beneath the lemon tree my love and I did lie
It was a love so sweet, it left us high
We passed up all our time without a summer care
And in the heat I forgot all my momma said

Don't put your faith in love, you'll see
It's like the lemon tree

Lemon tree, very pretty
And the lemon fire is sweet
But the fruit of the lemon
Is impossible to eat

One day I woke up 'long the road, it was without the sun
I looked for my love, and he was gone
But don't put your faith in love, you'll see
It's like the lemon tree
