“Harper Valley P.T.A.” este o melodie compusă de Tom T. Hall, care a devenit hit internațional în 1968, pentru Jeannie C. Riley. D. Discul s-a vândut în peste 6 milioane de exemplare.

Jeannie C. Riley a primit un Grammy pentru această melodie, la categoria “Best Country Vocal Performance, Female”.

Jeannie cântă d-na Johnson, o văduvă care are o fiică elevă în  anul 2 de liceu, care vine acasă cu o notă scrisă de secretara de la PTA (Parent-Teacher Association), pentru mama ei,  precum că are fusta prea scurtă, consumă alcool și flirtează cu mulți bărbați. Enervată la culme, d-na Johnson să decide să vorbească cu cei de la PTA.

Spre supriză celor de la PTA, care aveau o ședința, d-na Johnson apare într-o fustă mini, și începe să povestească de indiscretiile membrilor, mulți fiind prezenți la ședință. Membrii aveau tot felul de indiscreții și relații, iar în final d-na Johnsons, le spune că sânt ipocriți.

I wanna tell you all the 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
And she said, “mom, I got a note here from the Harper Valley PTA”
Well, the note said, “Mrs. Johnson
You’re wearin’ your dresses way too high
It’s reported you’ve been drinking
And a-running round with men and goin’ wild
And we don’t believe you oughta be a-bringin’ up
Your little girl this way”
And it was signed by the Secretary
Harper Valley PTA
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 to 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 sittin’ there
And seven times he’s asked me for a date
And Mrs. Taylor sure seems to use a lotta ice
Whenever he’s away
And Mr. Baker can you tell us why
Your secretary had to leave this town?
And shouldn’t 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 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
