Dusty Springfield - Son of a preacher man
Tekst en muziek: John Hurley en Ronnie Wilkins
(1968)






Billy Ray was a preacher’s son
And when his daddy would visit, he’d come along
When they gathered around and started talking
That’s when Billy would take me walking
Through the back yard we’d go walking
Then he’d look into my eyes
Lord knows, to my surprise



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



Being good isn’t always easy
No matter how hard I try
When he started sweet-talking 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



The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes he was, he was, Lord knows he was Yes he was



How well I remember
The look that was in his eyes
Stealing kisses from me on the sly
Taking time to make time
Telling me that he’s all mine
Learning from each other’s knowing
Looking to see how much we’ve grown and



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



The only one who could ever reach me
He was the sweet-talkin’ son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
I guess, he was the son of a preacher man
The only one who could ever move me
Sweet-lovin’ son of a preacher man



The only one who could ever thrill me
Aah, move me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
