Son Of A Preacher Man – Dusty Springfield!

Billy-Ray was a preacher’s son and when his daddy would visit he’d come along.
When they gathered around and started talkin’,
that’s when Billy would take me walkin’,
out 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, ooh yes he was.

Bein’ good isn’t always easy, no matter how hard I try (oh-oh).
When he started sweet-talkin’ to me,
he’d come and tell me “Everything is all right” (oh-oh).
He’d kiss and tell me “Everything is all right” (oh-oh),
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 (was), he was(was), ooh Lord knows he was (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 other’s knowin’,
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 (was), he was (was), oh yes he was.

(The only one who could ever reach me, was a son of a preacher man) He was the sweet-talkin’ son of a preacher man.
(The only boy who could ever teach me, was a son of a preacher man) Ah his name was the son of a preacher man.
(The only one who could ever woo me, was a son of a preacher man) Sweet-talkin’ son of a preacher man.
(The only one who could ever woo me, was a son of a preacher man) Ah he was the son of a preacher man.
(The only one who could ever reach me, was a son of a preacher man).
