Billy Rae was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they'd gather 'round and started talking
That's when Billy would take me walkin'
Through the backyard 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, Ooooo yeah

How well I remember
The look that was in his eyes
Steelin' kisses from me on the sly
Takin' time to make time
Tellin' me that he's all mine
Learnin' from each other knowing
Lookin' to see how much we've grown

The only one, who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes he was, he was,
Ooooo He was

(laugh at end)
