"Harper Valley PTA" a song about Southern Conservative Hypocrites. Some things never change.

I had to retire performing one of my favorite country songs. "The Fair Collector" about a romance with a toll taker. With the advent of EZpass and Pay by Plate, no one knows what a toll collector is anymore.
