Harper Valley P.T.A.
Tom T. Hall; Jeannie C. Riley; Dolly Parton 1967
  (Blue Star 1965)   Bob Rust

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*I'm gonna tell you folks a story
'Bout a Harper Valley widowed wife
She had a teenaged daughter
That attended Harper Valley Junior High

Left allemande your corner, dosado your own
And swing and promenade
Just like the day my momma socked it to the Harper Valley PTA


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Well the head 2 couples dosado
And square thru and get me 4 hands round
You star by the right and come back in
Star by the left and turn it one time round
You swing thru and the boys run
And wheel and deal, and swing and promenade
Just like the day my momma socked it to the Harper Valley PTA


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Well it happened that the PTA was gonna meet that very afternoon
And they were sure surprised when Mrs. Johnson wore her mini-skirt into the room

*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.
