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.
