Son Of A Preacherman Songtext
Billy Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they gathered around and starting talking
That's when Billy would take me walking
Out 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, ooh, yes he was
Ohh alelujiah

Being good isn't always easy
No matter how hard I try
When he started sweet-talking to me
He'd come'n tell me "Everything is all right
Baby baby "Everything is all right"
Can I get away again tonight now

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, ooh, yes he was
Yes he was, he was, ooh, yes he was
Hmmmm

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 other's 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, ooh, yes he was (Allelujiah...)
Allelujiah
Son of a preacher man (Allelujiah)
Son of a preacher man
Allelujiah yeah
Son of a preacher man
Allelujiah for the son
Son of a preacher man
He was the only boy yes he is that could ever reach me
Son of a preacher man
Yes he is that could ever reach me
Son of a preacher man
