Im Gonna Act Right

Song Author Mel Tillis Performer: Carl Smith Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I'm gonna quit rambling [G7]gambling [C]staying out late at [F]night
I'm gonna go [C]home where I [G7]belong I'm gonna act [C]right

Today I got a letter from my [F]wife and her lawyer [C]friend

It said they knew everything I've been doing
And [D7]they know every place I've [G7]been   
They [C]even had a bunch of pictures of [F]me on a dance hall [C]floor
Then it [F]went on to say if I [C]didn't act right
They'd [G7]dig up a whole lot [C]more


Well...
[C]I'm gonna quit rambling [G7]gambling [C]staying out late at [F]night
I'm gonna go [C]home where I [G7]belong I'm gonna act [C]right

I turned the page right nervously and [F]slowly took a [C]peek
The money that they had me for I'd [D7]have to work a ten day [G7]week   
Well [C]it ain't that I'm a coward I've [F]always been pretty [C]tough
But [F]honey you know I [C]still love you how [G7]come you wanna play so [C]rough

[C]I'm gonna quit rambling [G7]gambling [C]staying out late at [F]night
I'm gonna go [C]home where I [G7]belong I'm gonna act [C]right


I'm gonna quit rambling gambling staying out late at night
I'm gonna go home where I belong I'm gonna act right

Today I got a letter from my wife and her lawyer friend

It said they knew everything I've been doing
And they know every place I've been
They even had a bunch of pictures of me on a dance hall floor
Then it went on to say if I didn't act right
They'd dig up a whole lot more

Well...
I'm gonna quit rambling gambling staying out late at night
I'm gonna go home where I belong I'm gonna act right

I turned the page right nervously and slowly took a peek
The money that they had me for I'd have to work a ten day week
Well it ain't that I'm a coward I've always been pretty tough
But honey you know I still love you how come you wanna play so rough

I'm gonna quit rambling gambling staying out late at night
I'm gonna go home where I belong I'm gonna act right
