Joss Stone – Son Of A Preacher Man

All Music

Billy Ray was the preacher’s son
And when his daddy would visit he’d come along
When they gathered ’round and started 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 boy 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, yes, he was

Bein’ good isn’t always easy
No matter how hard I try (Ooh-ooh)
When he started sweet-talkin’ to me
Kiss and tell me “Everything is alright” (Ooh-ooh)
Kiss and tell me “Everything is alright” (Ooh-ooh)
Can I get away again tonight?

The only one boy could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Said the only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man”
Yes, he was, he was
Ooh, yes, he was
(Yes, he was)

Said 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’ve grown and

The only boy 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
Said yes, he was, he was
Ooh, yes, he was

The only boy

The only boy
