Ballad Of A Teenage Queen

Song Author Jack Clement Performer: Johnny Cash og Jack Clement Submitted by: Anonymous

[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  
[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 every[F]thing it [C]seemed
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

Dream on dream on [F]teenage [C]queen
[F]You should [C]be a [G7]movie [C]queen

He would marry [F]her next [C]spring
Saved his money and [G7]bought a [C]ring
Then one day a [F]movie [C]scout
Came to town to [G7]take her [C]out  
[F]Hollywood could [C]offer more
So she left the [G7]boy next [C]door
Working at the [G7]candy [C]store

Dream on dream on [F]teenage [C]queen
See you on the [G7]movie [C]screen

Very soon she [F]was a [C]star
Pretty house and [G7]shinning [C]cars
Swimming pool and a [F]fence a[C]round
But she missed her [G7]old home [C]town
[F]All the world was [C]at her door
All except the [G7]boy next [C]door
Who worked at the [G7]candy [C]store

Dream on dream on [F]teenage [C]queen
Saddest girl we've [G7]ever [C]seen

Then one day the [F]teenage [C]star
Sold her house and [G7]all her [C]cars
Gave up all her [F]wealth and [C]fame
Left it all and [G7]caught a [C]train
[F]Do I have to [C]tell you more
She came back to the[G7] boy next [C]door
Who worked at the [G7]candy [C]store

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


Dream on Dream on teenage queen
Prettiest girl we've ever seen

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

Dream on dream on teenage queen
Prettiest girl we've ever seen

She was tops in all they said
It never once went to her head
She had everything it seemed
Not a care this teenage queen
Other boys could offer more
But she loved the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store

Dream on dream on teenage queen
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
Hollywood could offer more
So she left the boy next door
Working 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 shinning cars
Swimming pool and a fence around
But she missed her old home town
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
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
You'll hear it all at the candy store
