Yonder Comes a Sucker

Jim Reeves

Railroad, steamboat, river and canal
Yonder comes a sucker and he's got my girl
And she's gone gone gone and she's gone gone gone
And I'll bid her my last farewell

I fell in love with a pretty little thing
I thought that wedding bells would ring
She was as sweet as sweet could be
Till I found out what she did to me

Railroad, steamboat, river and canal
Yonder comes a sucker and he's got my girl
And she's gone gone gone and she's gone gone gone
And I'll bid her my last farewell

I asked her mother to let her go
She whispered mother please tell him no
Though he may think that I am true
There's plenty more who think so too

Railroad, steamboat, river and canal
Yonder comes a sucker and he's got my girl
And she's gone gone gone and she's gone gone gone
And I'll bid her my last farewell

Now I won't cry my life away
Some other sucker will have to pay
And when he finds that she is gone
I guess I'll hear him sing this song

Railroad, steamboat, river and canal
Yonder comes a sucker and he's got my girl
And she's gone gone gone and she's gone gone gone
And I'll bid her my last farewell
