Ballad of a Teenage Queen
Johnny Cash

Lyrics

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 'round her by the store
but she loved the boy next door,
who worked at the candy store.
She was tops in all, they said,
it never once went to her head.
She had everything, it seems,
not a care, this teenage queen.
Other boys could offer more
but she loved the boy next door,
who worked at the candy store.
He would marry her next spring,
saved his money, 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.
Very soon she was a star,
pretty house and shining cars,
swimming pool and a fence around it
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.
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.
