Verse 1:
        B[E]illy Ray was a preacher's son
        And when his d[A]addy would visit he'd c[E]ome 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:
        The o[E]nly one who could ever reach me
        [A]  Was the son of a p[E]reacher man
        The o[E]nly boy who could ever teach me
        [A]  Was the son of a pr[E]eacher man
        Yes he was, he w[B]as,  [A]   mmm, yes he was
        [1: repeat intro (1X)  2: to bridge] 
Verse 2 [one line sborter tban 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 cborus] 
Bridge:
        (Yes, he w[D]as)
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]:
        And the o[A]nly one who could ever reach me
        [D]  Was the son of a pr[A]eacher man
        The o[A]nly boy who could ever teach me
        [D]  Was the son of a pr[A]eacher man
        Yes he was, he w[E]as, [D7]ooh yes he was
Coda:
        (The o[A]nly one who could ever reach me
                       [D]    Was the son of a pr[A]eacher 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]
