Verse 1:

	 G
	Billy Ray was a preacher's son
	              C                      G
	And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
	When they'd gather 'round and started talking
	F7
	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:

	     G
	The only one who could ever reach me
	C                   G
	  Was the son of a preacher man
	     G
	The only boy who could ever teach me
	C                    G
	  Was the son of a preacher man
	                F    C
	Yes he was, he was,     mmm, yes he was

	[1: repeat intro (1X)  2: to bridge]

Verse 2 [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

[repeat chorus]

Bridge:

	          F
	(Yes, he was)

	How well I remember
	C
	  The look was in his eyes
	Stealin' kisses from me on the sly
	F7
	   Takin' time to make time
	Tellin' me that he's all mine
	G7
	   Learnin' from each other's knowin'
	Look at us here, how much we've grown

Chorus [in A]:

	         C
	And the only one who could ever reach me
	F                    C
	  Was the son of a preacher man
	     C
	The only boy who could ever teach me
	F                    C
	  Was the son of a preacher man
	                G   F7
	Yes he was, he was, ooh yes he was

Coda:

	      C
	(The only one who could ever reach me
	               F                      C
	                   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]
