Billy Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they'd gather 'round and started talking
That's when Billy would take me walkin'
A-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, mmm, yes he was

Being good isn't always easy
No matter how hard I'd try (ooh)
When he started sweet-talkin' to me
He'd come and tell me everything is all right (ooh)
He'd kiss and tell me everything is all right (ooh)
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 (was), he was (was), (ooh) mmm yes he was
(Yes, he was)

How well I remember
The look 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'
Look at us here, 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, ooh yes he was

(The only one who could ever reach me was the son of a preacher man)
He was the sweet-talking son of a preacher man
(The only boy who could ever teach me was the son of a preacher man)
A kiss-stealin' son of a preacher man
(The only one who could ever move me was the son of a preacher man)
(The only one who could ever groove me was the son of a preacher man)
[Repeat to fade]
