Lemon Tree
Last updated: 02.02.20
I have to thank Monika Jenne and De Saitenspeeler, a folk lore group in Berne, North Germany, for having Lemon Tree in my repertoire. I had the pleasure of helping them out on a few occasions with my concertina and especially when the played it during Ceilidh 2003. A sad song of a lost love and the failure to remember a father's advice when he said, "Don't put your faith in love, my boy";
But then wisdom never prevails! Or does it?
