Dusty Springfield – Son Of A Preacher Man Lyrics

Verse 1
Billy Ray was the 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
Out through the back yard we’d go walking
Then he’d look into my eyes
Lord knows, to my surprise

Chorus
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

Verse 2
Being 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 alright”
He’d kiss and tell me “Everything is alright”
Can I get away again tonight?

Chorus
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, (was), he was, (was)
Lord knows he was (ooh, yes he was)

Verse 3
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

Chorus
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, (was), he was, (was)
Oh, yes he was

Outro
(The only one who could ever reach me)
He was the sweet-talking son of a preacher man
(The only boy who could ever teach me)
I kissed the son of a preacher man
(The only one who could ever move me)
The sweet-loving son of a preacher man
(The only one who could ever groove me)
Was the son of a preacher man
(The only one who could ever reach me)
Was the son of a preacher man
