Lyrics

Billy Ray was a preacher's son And when his daddy would visit He'd come along When they'd gather 'Round the party talking That's when Billy Would take me walking 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, yeah, he was, oh, he was Oh, yeah (hallelujah)

Being good isn't always easy No matter how hard I try When he started sweet talking to me He'd kiss and tell me Everything is all right Baby, baby, everything is all right Can I sneak away again tonight now The only one who could ever reach me Was the son of a preacher man I tell you that, the only boy Who could ever teach me Was the son of a preacher man Yes he was, yeah, he was, oh, 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 he's all mine Learning from each others knowing Looking to see how much we're growing The only boy who could ever reach me Was the son of a preacher man I tell you that the only boy Who could ever teach me Was the son of a preacher man Oh, yes, he was, yeah, he was Oh, he was (hallelujah) Hallelujah (son of a preacher man) Hallelujah, oh, the son now, yeah (Son of a preacher man) hallelujah, yeah (Son of a preacher man) Hallelujah for the son now (Son of a preacher man) He's the only boy, yes, he is Who could ever reach me (Son of a preacher man) He's the only boy Who could ever teach me (Son of a preacher man)
