G                   C       G     C         G    D          G
(Dream on, dream on teenage queen prettiest girl we've ever seen)
G               C      G  
There's a story in our town
G                D      G 
Of the prettiest girl around
G                C      G  
Golden hair and eyes of blue
G                D         G         G                  D        G 
How those eyes could flash at you (How those eyes could flash at you)
C                            G
Boys hung 'round her by the score
G                 C        G                       D      G
But she loved the boy next door who worked at the candy store

G                   C       G     C         G    D           G    
(Dream on, dream on teenage queen prettiest girl we've ever seen)

G                C        G                  
She was tops in all they said
G                  D       G
It never once went to her head
G            C          G
She had everything it seems
G                 D       G     G                   D       G
Not a care, this teenage queen (Not a care, this teenage queen)
C                      G
Other boys could offer more
G                 C        G                       D      G
But she loved the boy next door who worked at the candy store

G                   C       G     C          G      D     G
(Dream on, dream on teenage queen you should be a movie queen)

G              C         G  
He would marry her next spring
G                D        G   
Saved his money, bought a ring
G                C    G
Then one day a movie scout
G                D       G     G                D       G 
Came to town to take her out (Came to town to take her out)
C                G
Hollywood could offer more
G               C          G                  D      G
So she left the boy next door working at the candy store

G                   C       G     C       G        D      G  
(Dream on, dream on teenage queen see you on the movie screen)

G             C      G     
Very soon she was a star
G                  D   G 
Pretty house and shiny car
G                    C       G  
Swimming pool and a fence around
G                   D        G     G                 D         G               
But she missed her old home town (But she missed her old home town)
C                         G  
All the world was at her door
G              C         G                       D     G     
All except the boy next door who worked at the candy store

G                   C       G     C       G           D    G   
(Dream on, dream on teenage queen saddest girl we've ever seen)

G                  C      G
Then one day the teenage star
G                  D      G 
Sold her house and all her cars
G                 C         G
Gave up all her wealth and fame
G                 D         G   G                  D       G   
Left it all and caught a train (Left it all and caught a train)
C                      G      
Do I have to tell you more
G                    C         G                       D     G 
She came back to the boy next door who worked at the candy store

G                C        G      C         G               D     G
(Now this story has some more, you'll hear it all at the candy store)

thank for the 5! when i tabbed the song, i must have been listening to a different recording, because when i matched pitch on the tonic i was sure it was a Bb. the beauty of it is that you can just slide the capo up to the fourth if you disagree :)

I want to post or [tab]
