"I'm Gonna Act Right" as written by and Mel Tillis....
I'm gonna quit rambling gambling stayin' out late at night
I'm gonna go home where I belong and I'm gonna act right
Today I got a letter from my wife and her lawyer friend
It said they know everything I've been doing
And they know every place that 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 could dig up a little bit more
I'm gonna quit rambling...
[ steel ]
I turned the page right nervously and I 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 want to play so rough
I'm gonna quit rambling...
I'm gonna quit rambling...
