Son of a Preacher Man - Linda Eder

Music: John Hurley/ Ronnie Wilkins
Lyrics: John Hurley/Ronnie Wilkins

Jimmy Ray was a preacher's son
When his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they gathered 'round the parlor talkin'
Cousin Jimmy would take me walkin'
Out through the backyard we'd go walkin'
And 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, ooh...

Being good isn't always easy
No matter how hard I try
When he started sweet talkin' to me
He'd come 'n tell me ev'rything is alright
kiss and tell me ev'rything is alright
And "can I sneak 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, ooh...

How well I remember
The look that was in his eyes
Stealin' kisses from me on the sly
Takin' time to make time
Tellin' me that he's all mine
Learnin' from each other's knowin'
And lookin' 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, yeah...
