Harper Valley Pta  Jeannie C Riley

I wan[G7]t to tell you all a story 'bout a Harper Valley widowed wife
Who had a te[C7]enage daughter who attended Harper Valley Junior High
Well her da[G7]ughter came home one afternoon and didn't even stop to play
She said [C7]Mom I got a note here from the H[D7]arper Valley P.T.[G7]A.
The [G7]note said Misses Johnson, you're wearing your dresses way too high
It's re[C7]ported you've been drinking and a runnin' round with men and going wild
And we d[G7]on't believe you ought to be a bringing up your little girl this way
It was si[C7]gned by the secretary, H[D7]arper Valley P.T.[G7]A.
Well, it h[G7]appened that the P.T.A. was gonna meet that very afternoon
They were s[C7]ure surprised when Misses Johnson wore her miniskirt into the room
And as she w[G7]alked up to the blackboard I still recall the words she had to say
She said, I'd l[C7]ike to address this meeting of the H[D7]arper Valley P.T.[G7]A.
Well there's B[Ab7]obby Taylor, sitting there and seven times he's asked me for a
date
Misses Ta[Db7]ylor sure seems to use a lot of ice whenever he's away
And Mister [Ab7]Baker can you tell us why your secretary had to leave this town
And shouldn't W[Db7]idow Jones be told to keep her w[Eb7]indow shades all pulled
completely d[Ab7]own?
Well[A7] Mister Harper couldn't be here 'cause he stayed to long at Kelly's Bar
again
And if you s[D7]mell Shirley Tompson's breath you'll find she's had a little nip
of gin
Then you [A7]have the nerve to tell me you think that as a mother I'm not fit
Well this is [D7]just a little Peyton Place and [E7]you're all Harper Valley
[A7]hypocrites.
No, I[A7] wouldn't put you on because it really did , it happend just this way
The day my [D7]Mama socked it to the [E7]Harper Valley P.[A7]t.A.
The day my [Ab7]Mama socked it to the H[Bb7]arper Valley P.T.[Eb7]A.
