* 12th-fret harmonic
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]
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
