In the Good Old Days (When Times Were Bad) is the third solo studio album by Dolly Parton, released in February 1969.
In the title song, Parton looks back on her impoverished upbringing, concluding that while she values the lessons it taught her, she would not want to go back. The humorous "He's a Go Getter" plays on an unexpected pun ("When his wife gets off from work, he'll go get 'er"), and she covers the Jeannie C. Riley hit "Harper Valley PTA", Tammy Wynette's "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" and her mentor Porter Wagoner's hit "The Carroll County Accident".
Parton would rerecord a slower tempo version of the title song for inclusion on her 1973 album My Tennessee Mountain Home.
