Gentry Exposed

Being good isn’t always easy, No matter how hard I try. When he started sweet-talkin’ to me, He’d come and tell me everything is all right… The only one who could ever reach me, He was the sweet-talking son of a preacher man….

Billy-Ray was a 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’
A-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 manBeing good isn’t always easy
No matter how hard I try
When he started sweet-talkin’ to me
He’d come and tell me everything is all right

How well I remember
The LIGHT 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 knowing
Marveling how God had us growin….

The only one who could ever reach me
He was the sweet-talking son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me was…
The sweet-lovin’ son of a preacher man.
The man who taught me to see God’s light!
