Yonder Comes A Sucker

Lyrics: Jim Reeves
Music: Jim Reeves

Robert Hunter sang the chorus as part of an encore on 5 March 1997.

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 she could be
Till I found out what she did to me


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'll think so too


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
