YONDER COMES A SUCKER
(Jim Reeves)
JIM REEVES (RCA 47-6200, 1955)

[Chorus]
Railroad, steamboat, river and canal
Yonder comes a sucker and he's got my gal
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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]
