Harper Valley Pta

Jeannie C Riley

 G7
I want to tell you all a story 'bout a Harper Valley widowed wife
 C7
Who had a teenage daughter who attended Harper Valley Junior High
 G7
Well her daughter came home one afternoon and didn't even stop to play
 C7D7G7
She said Mom I got a note here from the Harper Valley P.T.A.
 G7
The note said Misses Johnson, you're wearing your dresses way too high
 C7
It's reported you've been drinking and a runnin' round with men and going wild
 G7
And we don't believe you ought to be a bringing up your little girl this way
 C7D7G7
It was signed by the secretary, Harper Valley P.T.A.
 G7
Well, it happened that the P.T.A. was gonna meet that very afternoon
 C7
They were sure surprised when Misses Johnson wore her miniskirt into the room
 G7
And as she walked up to the blackboard I still recall the words she had to say
 C7D7G7
She said, I'd like to address this meeting of the Harper Valley P.T.A.
 Ab7
Well there's Bobby Taylor, sitting there and seven times he's asked me for a
date
 Db7
Misses Taylor sure seems to use a lot of ice whenever he's away
 Ab7
And Mister Baker can you tell us why your secretary had to leave this town
 Db7Eb7
And shouldn't Widow Jones be told to keep her window shades all pulled
 Ab7
completely down?
 A7
Well Mister Harper couldn't be here 'cause he stayed to long at Kelly's Bar
again
 D7
And if you smell Shirley Tompson's breath you'll find she's had a little nip
of gin
 A7
Then you have the nerve to tell me you think that as a mother I'm not fit
 D7E7
Well this is just a little Peyton Place and you're all Harper Valley
 A7
 hypocrites.
 A7
No, I wouldn't put you on because it really did , it happend just this way
 D7E7A7
The day my Mama socked it to the Harper Valley P.t.A.
 Ab7Bb7Eb7
The day my Mama socked it to the Harper Valley P.T.A.
