Ballad Of A Teenage Queen

Johnny Cash



 CFC
  Dream on, Dream on,  teenage  queen
 FCG7C
  Prettiest  girl we've  ever  seen.

 CFC
  There's a story  in our  town
 G7C
Of the prettiest  girl a- round
 FC
Golden hair and  eyes of  blue
 G7C
How those eyes could  flash at  you.
 G7C
How those eyes could  flash at  you
 FC
  Boys hung around her  by the score
 G7C
But she loved the  boy next  door
 G7C
Who worked at the  candy  store.

 CFC
  Dream on, Dream on,  teenage  queen
 FCG7C
  Prettiest  girl we've  ever  seen.

 CFC
  She was tops in  all they  said
 G7C
It never once went  to her  head
 FC
She had ev'ry- thing, it  seemed
 G7C
Not a care, this  teenage  queen
 G7C
Not a care, this  teenage  queen
 FC
  Other boys could  offer more
 G7C
But she loved the  boy next  door
 G7C
Who worked at the  candy  store.

 CFC
  Dream on, Dream on,  teenage  queen
 FCG7C
  You should  be a  movie  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.

  Now this story  has some  more
 FCG7C
  You'll hear it  all at the  candy  store.

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