Ballad Of A Teenage Queen  Johnny Cash



[C] Dream on, Dream on, [F] teenage [C] queen
[F] Prettiest [C] girl we've [G7] ever [C] seen.
[C] There's a story [F] in our [C] town
Of the prettiest [G7] girl a-[C] round
Golden hair and [F] eyes of [C] blue
How those eyes could [G7] flash at [C] you.
How those eyes could [G7] flash at [C] you
[F] Boys hung around her [C] by the score
But she loved the [G7] boy next [C] door
Who worked at the [G7] candy [C] store.
[C] Dream on, Dream on, [F] teenage [C] queen
[F] Prettiest [C] girl we've [G7] ever [C] seen.
[C] She was tops in [F] all they [C] said
It never once went [G7] to her [C] head
She had ev'ry-[F] thing, it [C] seemed
Not a care, this [G7] teenage [C] queen
Not a care, this [G7] teenage [C] queen
[F] Other boys could [C] offer more
But she loved the [G7] boy next [C] door
Who worked at the [G7] candy [C] store.
[C] Dream on, Dream on, [F] teenage [C] queen
[F] You should [C] be a [G7] movie [C] queen.
He would marry her next spring
Saved his money and bought a ring
Then one day a movie scout
Came to town to take her out
Came to town to take her out
Hollywood could offer more
So she left the boy next door
Workin' at the candy store.

Dream on, dream on, Teenage Queen
See you on the movie screen.

Very soon she was a star
Pretty house and shiny cars
Swimming pool and a fence around
But she missed her old hometown
But she missed her old hometown
All the world was at her door
All except the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store.

Dream on, dream on, Teenage Queen
Saddest girl we've ever seen.

Then one day the teenage star
Sold her house and all her cars
Gave up all her wealth and fame
Left it all and caught a train
Left it all and caught a train
Do I have to tell you more
She came back to the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store.

TAG:
[C] Now this story [F] has some [C] more
[F] You'll hear it [C] all at the [G7] candy [C] store.

It sounds to me like the chords are A, D, and E with a capo on the second fret.
