Ballad Of A Teenage Queen

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

June Carter and the Statler Brothers:
Dream on, dream on teenage queen
The prettiest girl we’ve ever seen

Johnny Cash:
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

June Carter and the Statler Brothers:
How those eyes could flash at you

Johnny Cash:
Boys hung around her by the score
But she loved the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store

June Carter and the Statler Brothers:
Dream on, dream on teenage queen
You should be a movie queen

Johnny Cash:
He would marry her next spring
Saved his money brought a ring
Then one day a movie scout
Came to town to take her out

June Carter and the Statler Brothers:
Came to town to take her out

Johnny Cash:
Hollywood could offer more
So she left the boy next door
Working at the candy store

June Carter and the Statler Brothers:
Dream on, dream on teenage queen
See you on the movie screen

Johnny Cash:
Very soon she was a star
Pretty house and shining car
Swimming pool and a fence around
But she missed her old hometown

June Carter and the Statler Brothers:
But she missed her old hometown

Johnny Cash:
All the world was around
All except the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store

June Carter and the Statler Brothers:
Dream on, dream on teenage queen
The saddest girl we’ve ever seen

Johnny Cash:
Then one day this teenage star
Sold her house and all her cars
Gave up all her wealth and fame
Left it all and caught a train

June Carter and the Statler Brothers:
Left it all and caught a train

Johnny Cash:
Do I have to tell you more
She came back to the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store

June Carter and the Statler Brothers:
Now this story has some more
You can hear it all at the candy store
