Lyrics
Billy Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they gathered round and started talking
That's when Billy would take me walking
A-through the back yard we'd go walking
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

Beeing good isn't always easy
No matter how hard I try
When he started sweet-talking 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, lord knows he was
How well I remember
The look that was in his eyes
Stealing kisses from me on the sly
Taking time to make time
Telling me that hes all mine
Learning from each others' knowing
Looking 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-talking son of a preacher man
The only one who could ever teach me
I guessed he was the son of a preacher man

The only one who could ever move me
Sweet-lovin 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 reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
