Sweet talkin' Jimmy Ray was the son of a preacher man
Yes, he was now
That man, that Jimmy Ray
Was a preacher man's son
Yes, he was now

Jimmy Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they gathered 'round the parlour talkin'
Cousin Jimmy would take me walkin'
Through the back woods 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, yeah
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes he was
(Was)
He was
(Was)
Ooh, yes he was

Bein' good isn't always easy
No matter how hard I try
When he started his sweet-talkin' to me
He'd come and tell me, "Everything is all right"
Kiss and tell me, "Everything is all right
Can you get away again tonight?"

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

How well I remember
The look that was in his eyes
Stealin' kisses from me on the sly
Takin' time to make time
(Make time)
Tellin' me that he's all mine
(All mine)
Learnin' from each other's knowin'
And watchin' to see how much we've grown

(The only boy who could ever reach her)
Was the son of a preacher man, yeah
(The only boy who could ever teach her)
He was the sweet talkin' son of a preacher man
Yes he was
(Yeah)
He was
(Yeah)
Oh yes he was

The only boy who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man, yeah
The only boy who could ever teach me
He was the sweet talkin' son of a preacher man
Yes he was
(Was)
He was
(Was)
Oh yes he was

The only boy who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man, yeah
The only boy who could ever teach me
He was the sweet talkin' son of a preacher man
Yes he was
(Was)
He was
(Was)
Ooh

The only boy who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man, yeah
The only boy who could ever teach me
