[Verse 1]

         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

[Verse 2] 

         E
        Being good isn't always easy
                      A                      E
        No matter how hard I'd try
        When he started sweet-talkin' to me
        B7
        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]

             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


[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


[Coda]

              A
        (The only one who could ever reach me
                       D                      A
                           Was the son of a preacher man)
          He was the sweet-talking son of a preacher man)

        (The only boy who could ever teach me
                           Was the son of a preacher man)
                   A kiss-stealin' son of a preacher man

        (The only one who could ever move me
         Was the son of a preacher man)

        (The only one who could ever groove me
         Was the son of a preacher man)         [fade]
