Son Of A Preacher Man
Dusty Springfield

Lyrics

Billy Ray was a preacher's son and when his daddy would visit he'd come along.
When they gathered 'round and started talkin',
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.
Bein' 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.
Lord knows he was.
How well I remember the look was in his eyes,
steain' kisses from me on the sly.
Takin' time to make time,
tellin' me that he's all mine.
Learnin' from each other's knowin',
lookin' to see how much we've grown.
The only one who could ever reach me,
was the son of a preacher man.
The only boy that could ever teach me,
was the son of a preacher man.
Yes he was,
he was,
oh, yes he was.
Was the sweet talkin' son of a preacher man.
I kissed the son of a preacher man.
The sweet lovin' son of a preacher man.
Ooh, oh yeah.
The only one who could ever reach me,
was the son of a preacher man.
