Jeannie C Riley – Return To Harper Valley chords


[Verse 1]
AY'all remember Harper Valley and the Harper Valley PTA.
BWell have you ever wondered where they are and what those folks are doin' today,
ANow things have changed a lot but we all seem to understand things better by and by,
D E A ANow my daughter is the mother of two children at the Harper Valley High.
[Interlude] A D E A [Verse 2]
AWell my daughter came to see me she was sellin' tickets for the high school dance,
BI could win a brand new album by some Stray Cats if I'd only buy a chance,
AWell I bought the tickets and the chance to win a brand new rock 'n' roll LP,
D E A FAnd when Friday came I walked into the place my dress was well below my knees.
[Verse 3]
BbNow Mr. Harper took my ticket and he smiled at me as sober as a judge,
EbShirley Thompson she was there with him she shook my hand and then gave me a hug,
BbYou know they're married now and my they look so happy and contented side by side,
Eb F BbAnd to my surprise Bobby Taylor never took his eyes off of his wife.
[Verse 4]
BbMr. Baker stirred the punch it was lemonade with nothin' on the side,
EbHis secretary smiled at me and said she was so happy as his bride,
BbWidow Jones is dead she and a young kid missed a curve on Lover's Lane,
Eb F BbMr. Kelly's gone he drank until they said it took his liver and his brain.
[Verse 5]
BbNow the music started up and it was louder than a thunderstorm in May,
EbWell I stood there and I laughed to see the way the kids all get their kicks today,
BbThen I saw a man who gave a cigarette to some small kid too young to smoke,
Eb F BbHe was a full-grown man and he was set up in the parking lot a sellin' dope.
[Verse 6]
BbWell I walked around the place and saw the drummer sniffin' powder up his nose,
EbThen I walked out through the parking lot and saw these kids were takin' off their clothes,
BbThey were drinkin' beer and poppin' pills and actin' like they all was havin' fun,
Eb F BbI got so mad I thought at first I'd go back to the house and get a gun.
[Verse 7]
F# B But I went back to my home and took my Bible out and said a little prayer,
ENow tomorrow I can tell 'em that God loves 'em and I'll tell 'em that I care,
BI think back fifteen years ago when I was wild and wore a mini skirt,
E F# BAin't no way I can explain the things I did and all the people that I hurt.
[Verse 8]
BWell the music keeps on ringin' in my ears and I can hear the drummers beat,
EI can see the way things are and I can see the things the kids are thinkin' neat,
BWell tomorrow afternoon the PTA'll meet and I got things to say,
E F# BTo a brand new generation of the Harper Valley PTA.
E F# B E F# BTo a brand new generation, Of the Harper Valley PTA.
