Harper Valley PTA

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 
             D                             E               A 
and she said Mama got a note here from the Harper Valley PTA 
Well, the note said Mrs. Johnson you're wearing your dresses way to high 
it's reported you been drinkin' and a'runnin 'round with men and going wild 
and we don't believe you oughta be a'bringin' up your little girl this way 
           D                       E               A 
and it was signed by the secretary Harper Valley PTA 
*Key Change - A# 
Well, it happened that the PTA was gonna meet that very afternoon 
and they were sure surprised when Mrs. Johnson wore her miniskirt into the room 
and as she walked up the blackboard I can still recall the words she had to say 
she said I'd like to address this meeting of the Harper Valley PTA 
Well, there's Bobby Taylor sitting there and seven times he's asked me for a date 
and Mrs. Taylor sure seems to use a lot of ice whenever he's away 
And Mr. Baker can you tell us why your secretary had to leave this town? 
And shouldn't Witta Jones be told to keep her window shades all pulled completely down 
*Key Change - B 
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 little nip of gin 
And then you have the nerve to tell me you think that as a mother I'm not fit 
well, this is just a little 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 
the day my mama socked it to the Harper Valley PTA 
the day my mama socked it to the Harper Valley PTA 

there isn't a video lesson for this song
