I dream about this often. Maybe try a little 'People Get Ready' for ol' times sake.

I would give the guitar back, walk up to the mic, and start singing Lemon with the best falsetto I have.

You just gave me the idea to try playing Lemon in the style of Sunday Bloody Sunday on acoustic guitar. The verses would sound good, but I'm not sure about the pre-chorus bridge and the chorus.

I think I read somewhere that someone who was pulled on stage somewhere started playing A Sort of Homecoming making the band scramble to play a few bars themselves.

It's really not that hard, at least as far as I've learned it.  If you know the "D minor" chord shape, you're pretty well set.
