Johnny Cash
Ballad of a teenage queen
by Marcel Veltman

It took me some while to learn to play this without laughing on every 'Who worked at
the candy store' Otherwise it's quite simple.

  F        C        F       C
(Dream on dream on teenage queen)
       F        C          G    C
(The prettiest girl we've ever seen)
 C              F        C
There's a story in this town
         G              C
Of the prettiest girl around
                 F       C
Golden hair and eyes of blue
                      G         C
How these eyes could blush off you
                       G         C   
(How these eyes could blush off you, aaahaaahaa....)
 F                   C
Boys hung round her by the score
                   G        C
But she loved the boy next door
                   G     C
Who worked at the candy store

(Dream on.......prettiest girl we've ever seen)
She was tops for all they said
It never once went to her head
She had everything it seems
Not a care this teenage queen (repeat in backing)
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 merry her next spring
Saved his money bought a ring
Ten one day a movy scout
came to town to take her out (---)
Holywood could offer more
So she left the boy next door who worked..etc.
(Dream on dream on teenage queen
See you on the movie screen)

Very soon she was a star
Pretty house and fancy car
Swimming pool and fence around
But she missed her old home town (---)
All the world was at her door
But she missed the boy next door who worked....etc.
(Dream on....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 cought a train (---)
Do I have to tell you more
She came back to the boy next door who worked...etc.
(Now this story has a moral
hear it all at the candy store)
