Jeannie C Riley – Return To Harper Valley chords
[Intro] A [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.[Outro]E F# B E F# BTo a brand new generation, Of the Harper Valley PTA.
