Harper Valley P.T.A.
written by Tom T. Hall
from the album "Trail of Tears"
tabbed 7/4/05


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

Well the note said "Mrs. Johnson, you've been wearing your dresses way too high
It's been reported you've been drinking and running 'round with men and goin' wild
And we don't believe you oughta be bringin' up your little girl this way"
And 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
And they were sure surprised when Mrs. Johnson wore her mini skirt into the room
And as she walked up to the blackboard I still recall the words she had to say
She said I'd like to adress this meeting of the Harper Valley P.T.A.

(key change to A)

"Well there's Bobby Taylor sittin' there, and 7 times he's asked me for a date
And Mrs. Taylor sure seems to use a lot of eyes whenever he's away
And Mr. Baker can you tell us why your secretary had to leave this town
                  D                                E                                  A
And shouldn't old Widow Jones be told to keep her window shades all pulled completely down

"Well Mr. Harper couldn't be here 'cause he stayed too long at Kelly's Bar again
And if you smell Shirley Thompson's breath you'll find she's had a litte nip of gin
And then you have the nerve to tell me as a mother you think that I'm not fit
Well this is just a Peyton Place and you're all Harper Valley hypocrites"

No I wouldn't put you on because it really did it happened just this way
            D                     E                 A
The day her mama socked it to the Harper Valley P.T.A.
            D                      E                A
The day her mama socked it to the Harper Valley P.T.A.
            D                      E                A
The day her mama socked it to the Harper Valley P.T.A.
