Jim Reeves

James Travis "Jim" Reeves (August 20, 1923 – July 31, 1964) was an American country and popular music singer-songwriter. With records charting from the 1950s to the 1980s, he became well known as a practitioner of the Nashville sound (a mixture of older country-style music with elements of popular music). Known as "Gentleman Jim", his songs continued to chart for years after his death. Reeves died at age 40 in the crash of a private airplane. He is a member of both the Country Music and Texas Country Music Halls of Fame. more »

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

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

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

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 gal
And she's gone, gone, gone
And she's gone, gone, gone
And I'll bid her my last farewell
