Son Of A Preacher Man
Aretha Franklin


Billy Ray was a preacher's son
and when his daddy would visit
he'd come along.
When they'd gather 'round and
start a-talkin', that's when
Billy would take me walkin'
Out through the back door we'd
go walkin'
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...

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?

Refrain again.

Oh well, I remember the look
was in his eyes
Stealing kisses from me on the sly
Takin' time to make time
Tellin' me that he's all mine
Learnin' from each other's knowin' (not sure about that line)
Lookin' to see how much we'd grown

And the only one who could ever reach me....
(Refrain continued to the end...)
