Billy-Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they gathered round and started talkin'
Thats when Billy would take me walkin'
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, ohh, yes he was

Being 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 alright
He'd kiss and tell me everything is alright
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, ohh, 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 others knowing
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-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 reach me) Sweet-lovin' son of a preacher man
(The only one who could ever teach me) Sweet-lovin' son of a preacher man

Yes, he was, he was, oooooooooooooooh
