Aretha Franklin – Son Of A Preacher Man lyrics
Billy Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they gathered around the parlour talkin'
That's when Billy would take me walkin'
Through the back yard 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, (Halleluia)
Yeah he was, (Halleluia)
Oh he was (Ah, Halleluia)

Bein' good isn't always easy
No matter how hard you try
When he started sweet-talkin' to me
He'd kiss'n tell me "Everything is all right. (Sock it to me)
Baby, baby, everything is all right. " (Ah, sock it to me)
"Can I sneak away again tonight?"

Now, the only one who could ever reach me
(Was the son of a preacher man)
I'll tell ya that the only boy who could ever teach me
(Was the son of a preacher man)
Yes he was, (Halleluia)
Yeah he was, (Halleluia)
Oh yes he was, (Ah...)

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'
Lookin' to see how much we're growin'

The only boy who could ever reach me
(Was the son of a preacher man)
I'll tell ya that the only boy who could ever teach me
(Was the son of a preacher man)
Oh yes he was, (Halleluia)
Yeah he was, (Halleluia)
Oh he was (Ah, Halleluia)

Halleluia!
(The son of a preacher man, Halleluia)
Halleluia for the son, now yeah!
(Son of a preacher man, Halleluia)
Ah, Halleluia Yeah!

(Son of a preacher man, Halleluia))
For sure, Halle- Halleluia for the son, now
(Son of a preacher man, Halleluia)
He's the only boy, yes he is who could ever reach me!
(Son of a preacher man, Halleluia)
He's the only boy who could ever teach me!
