Intro:

   
E                           

E                              
Billy-Ray was a Preacher's son,
             
A                      
E          
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along,
E                                              
B
When they gathered round and started talking,   
B                                       
That's when Billy would take me walking,
B                                     
Through the back yard we'd go walking,
B                           
Then he'd look into my eyes,
B                        
Lord knows to my suprise:

Chorus:

    
E                                 
A
The only one who could ever reach me,  
A                 
E           
Was the son of a preacher man,
    
E                                 
A
The only boy who could ever teach me,  
A                 
E           
Was the son of a preacher man,
       
E       
B    
A                
E
Yes he was, he was,   oh yes he was.  

E                             
A
Being good isn't always easy,  
A             
E            
No matter how hard I tried,
E                                    
B
When he started sweet talking to me,  
B                                       
he'd come tell me everything is alright,
B                                           
he'd kiss and tell me everything is alright,
B                            
Can I get away again tonight?

Repeat Chorus

D                     
A
How well I remember,   
A                             
The look that was in his eyes,
A                                   
B
Stealing kisses from me on the sly,  
B                        
Taking time to make time,
B                               
E
Telling me that he's all mine,   
E                                 
Learning from each others knowing,
E                                      
Lookin' to see how much we've grown and

    
A                                  
D
The only one who could ever reach me,   
D                 
A           
Was the son of a preacher man,
    
A                                 
D
The only boy who could ever teach me,  
D                 
A           
Was the son of a preacher man,
       
A       
E    
D               
Yes he was, he was,   oh yes he was.
