David Allan Coe  - Ballad Of A Tennage Queen 

B                   E       B
Dream on, Dream on, Teenage Queen
E         B          F#m  B
Prettiest girl we've ever seen.   

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

B                   E       B
Dream on, Dream on, Teenage Queen
E         B          F#m  B
Prettiest girl we've ever seen.      

B               E        B
She was tops in all they said
                   F#m    B
It never once went to her head
        E              B
She had ev'rything, it seemed
                 F#m     B
Not a care, this Teenage Queen
                 F#m     B
Not a care, this Teenage Queen
E                B
Other boys could offer more
                  F#m      B
But she loved the boy next door
                  F#m   B
Who worked at the candy store.

B                   E       B
Dream on, Dream on, Teenage Queen
E         B          F#m  B
You should have been a movie queen.

B              E        B
He would marry her next spring
                    F#m      B
Saved his money and bought a ring
               E     B
Then one day a movie scout
                F#m      B
Came to town to take her out
                F#m      B
Came to town to take her out
E               B
Hollywood could offer more
                F#m      B
So she left the boy next door
               F#m   B
Workin' at the candy store.

B                   E       B
Dream on, Dream on, Teenage Queen
E       B      F#m   B
See you on the movie screen.

B             E     B
Very soon she was a star
                 F#m    B
Pretty house and shiny cars
                    E     B
Swimming pool and a fence around
                   F#m     B
But she missed her old hometown
                   F#m     B
But she missed her old hometown
E                 B
All the world was at her door
               F#m      B
All except the boy next door
                  F#m   B
Who worked at the candy store.

B                   E       B
Dream on, Dream on, Teenage Queen
E       B          F#m  B
Saddest girl we've ever seen.

B                E       B
Then one day the teenage star
                   F#m     B
Sold her house and all her cars
                E          B
Gave up all her wealth and fame
                F#m      B
Left it all and caught a train
                F#m      B
Left it all and caught a train
E            B
Do I have to tell you more
                     F#m      B
She came back to the boy next door
                  F#m   B
Who worked at the candy store.
B              E        B
Now this story has some more
E              B          F#m   B
You'll hear it all at the candy store.

I haven't heard this version of the song, but the original is in the Key of C#, and the minor chord is major.(The F#m chord, in the original, it's G#). That might be the Coe version, but the way Cash did it, the 5 chord in the key was major, so it would be F#.
