Song: son of a preacher man
Billy Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they gathered around and started talkin'
That's when Billy would take me walkin'

Out through the back yard
We'd go walkin'
Then he'd look into my eyes
Lord knows, to my surprise

The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes, he was, he was, ooh yes, he was

Bein' good isn't always easy, no matter how hard I try
When he started sweet talkin' to me
He'd come and tell me "Everything is all right"
He'd kiss and tell me "Everything is all right"
Can I get away again tonight?

The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes, he was, he was, ooh yes, he was
(Yes, he was)

How well I remember the look that was in his eyes
Stealin' kisses from me on the sly
Takin' time to make time, tellin' me that he's all mine
Learnin' from each other's knowin'
Lookin' to see how much we've grown

And the only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes, he was, he was, oh yes, he was

(The only one who could ever reach me)
He was the sweet talkin' son of a preacher man
(The only boy who could ever teach me)
Was the son of a preacher man

(The only one who could ever reach me)
Was the sweet talkin' son of a preacher man
