Harper Valley P.T.A. 
Recorded by Jeannie C. Riley
Written by Tom T. Hall

G
I wanna tell you all a story 'bout a Harper Valley widowed wife
C
Who had a teenage daughter who attended Harper Valley Junior High
G
Well her daughter came home one afternoon and didn't even stop to play
C D7 G
She said mom I got a note here from the Harper Valley P.T.A.


The note said Misses Johnson you're wearing your dresses way too high
C
It's reported you've been drinking

And a running round with men and going wild
G
And we don't believe you ought to be a bringing up

Your little girl this way
C D7 G
It was signed by the secretary Harper Valley P.T.A.


Well it happened that the P.T.A. was gonna meet that very afternoon
C
They were sure surprised when Misses Johnson

Wore her miniskirt into the room
G
And as she walked up to the blackboard

I can still recall the words she had to say
C D7 G
She said I'd like to address this meeting of the Harper Valley P.T.A.


Well there's Bobby Taylor sitting there

And seven times he's asked me for a date
C
Misses Taylor sure seems to use a lot of ice whenever he's away
G
And Mister Baker can you tell us why your

Secretary had to leave this town
C
And shouldn't widow Jones be told to keep
D7 G
Her window shades all pulled completely down


Well Mister Harper couldn't be here

Cause he stayed to long at Kelly's Bar again
C
And if you smell Shirley Thompson's breath

You'll find she's had a little nip of gin
G
Then you have the nerve to tell me you think

That as a mother I'm not fit
C
Well this is just a little Peyton Place
D7 G
And you're all Harper Valley hypocrites


No I wouldn't put you on because

It really did it happened just this way
C D7 G
The day my Mama socked it to the Harper Valley P.T.A.
C D7 G
The day my Mama socked it to the Harper Valley P.T.A.
