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 and started talkin'
That's when Billy would take me walkin'

Happy birthday. Ellen!
This is the song Jan sang in her baby shower on The Office omg
Great classic..... . . . . . .
Hits from the bong
I don't why people repeat the phrase, "blue eyed soul"? It sound good no matter who sang it. TheBritish had great soul singers, so did white folk in Murica!
Bren there done that
One of the few songs that clicked with me when I was a kid...
I used to play this one at my computer desk every Friday afternoon before strutting out of the office. :)

I used to really like this song until the gay guy at Starbucks destroyed this song by singing along with it! Nice guy but come on man! Let Dusty to her thing:)
Better get your facts straight. John Hurley/Ronni e Wilkins wrote this song!!!
This was in pulp fiction & glad it was; otherwise I wouldn't know this sassy/sultry tune !
I remember this song!
Always think of Pulp Fiction when I hear this song. :)
Hey c...inhale, exhale, i just got an ounce in the mail

Amazing song!
Few people notice that the opening cords to this song are used in the opening of Cypress Hill's song, 'Hits from the Bong.'
Love u dusty my preacher queen
Dusty Springfield! The QUEEN of Blue Eye Soul!
One of MY favorite songs of all time. Great stuff!
No one sings this song like Dusty. Well, except maybe Elton John who sang it when inducting Dusty Springfield into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame :)
