Son of a Preacher Man – Lyrics with Guitar Chords

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

Chorus:

E                                               A
The only one who could ever reach me,
A                             E
Was the son of a preacher man,
E                                          A
The only boy who could ever teach me,
A                             E
Was the son of a preacher man,
E          B          A          E
Yes he was, he was, oh yes he was.
E                                       A
Being good isn’t always easy,
A                   E
No matter how hard I tried,
E                                          B
When he started sweet talking to me,
B
he’d come tell me everything is alright,
B
he’d kiss and tell me everything is alright,
B
Can I get away again tonight

Chorus

D                    A
How well I remember,
A
The look that was in his eyes,
A                                  B
Stealing kisses from me on the sly,
B
Taking time to make time,
B                            E
Telling me that he’s all mine,
E
Learning from each others knowing,
E
Lookin’ to see how much we’ve grown and
A                             D
The only one who could ever reach me,
D                            A
Was the son of a preacher man,
A                                 D
The only boy who could ever teach me,
D                                 A
Was the son of a preacher man,
A                   E                 D
Yes he was, he was, oh yes he was.
A                                     D
The only one who could ever reach me,
D                    A
Was the son of a preacher man
