Capo 4                                                                          Carolyn The Teenage Queen

Lonesome River Band


1. When I was pushing thirty, she was in her teens

2. Each day her love grew colder, at night she'd go to town

3. Car pulled in the driveway, the man wore a badge and gun

                                                   C                     G

1. Oh, how she loved me this pretty teenage queen

2. Gossip came to me, Carolyn was running round

3. Said you got a wife named Carolyn, I think you better come


1. But a few years after marriage she loved me no more

2. I didn't want to believe it, but knew it must be true

3. In a wreck out on the highway she'd met her final end

                                                               C                     G

1. When I was pushing forty, she was barely twenty-four

2. I couldn't stand to lose her so knew what I must do

3. I was staring in her face so deathly white she cheated me once again


                D                                        C                           G

1. Then the trouble started between Carolyn and me

2. Carolyn, I was thinking as I cleaned my gun

3. Each night I think of Carolyn, laying beneath the soil

    D                                           C                          D

1. I was satisfied at home, but she longed to be free

2. Go out and have a good time, it's you last night of fun

3. Each night my mind grows weaker as I burn the midnight oil


1. Been searching for that something, and the pastures looked so green

2. Twelve o'clock, one o'clock, till a quarter till two

3. My mind has thoughts of her bad sides that my heart's never seen

                                                            C                           G

1. Through the eyes of Carolyn, Carolyn the teenage queen

2. I'm still burning the midnight oil waiting up for you

3. I'm still in love with Carolyn, Carolyn the teenage queen
