Verse 1:
 E
        Billy Ray was a preacher's son
 AE
        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
 AE
          Was the son of a preacher man
 E
        The only boy who could ever teach me
 AE
          Was the son of a preacher man
 BA
        Yes he was, he was,     mmm, yes he was
        [1: repeat intro (1X)  2: to bridge]
 one line sborter tban verse 1
Verse 2 :
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:
 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
 inA
Chorus  :
 A
        And the only one who could ever reach me
 DA
          Was the son of a preacher man
 A
        The only boy who could ever teach me
 DA
          Was the son of a preacher man
 ED7
        Yes he was, he was, ooh yes he was
Coda:
 A
        (The only one who could ever reach me
 DA
                           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
 fade
         Was the son of a preacher man)
