Verse
E
Billy Ray was a preacher's son
	       A                      E
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they'd gather 'round and started talking
B7
That's when Billy would take me walking
A-through the back yard we'd go walking
Then he'd look into my eyes
Lord knows to my surprise

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

Intro x1

Verse (one line shorter than verse 1)
Being good isn't always easy
No matter how hard I'd try
When he started sweet-talkin' to me
He'd come and tell me everything is all right
He'd kiss and tell me everything is all right
Can I get away again tonight

Chorus

Bridge
         D
(Yes, he was)

How well I remember
A
  The look was in his eyes
Stealin' kisses from me on the sly
B7
  Takin' time to make time
Tellin' me that he's all mine
E7
  Learnin' from each other's knowin'
Look at us here, how much we've grown

Chorus (in A)
        A
And the only one who could ever reach me
D                  A
  Was the son of a preacher man
    A
The only boy who could ever teach me
D                  A
  Was the son of a preacher man
               E    D7
Yes he was, he was, ooh yes he was
