Billy Ray was a preacher's son
When they gathered around and started talkin'
Out through the back yard we'd go walkin'
Lord knows, to my surprise
The only one who could ever reach me
The only boy who could ever teach me
Yes he was, he was, ooh, yes he was
Bein' good isn't always easy
When he started sweet-talkin' to me
He'd kiss and tell me "Everything is all right"

Was the son of a preacher man
Was the son of a preacher man

The look that was in his eyes
Takin' time to make time
Learnin' from each other's knowin'

Was the son of a preacher man
Was the son of a preacher man

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