If you gonna keep on your keepin' on
Hurtin' me the way you do
One of these days babe I'm a gonna be gone
If you gonna keep on keepin' on your keepin' on.

You leave the house don't tell me where you're goin'
And you don't get home till the way past two
I think you oughta be knowin' this ol' country boy ain't a snowin'
And I'm gonna lay the law right down to you.

If you gonna keep on your keepin' on
Hurtin' me the way you do
One of these days babe I'm a gonna be gone
If you gonna keep on keepin' on your keepin' on.

Too late that ol' telephone's been ringin'
Some guy wants to know if the coast is clear
Well, it seemed to me that it's suspicious sound of question
'Cause as far as I know there ain't no coast guard around here.

If you gonna keep on your keepin' on
Hurtin' me the way you do
One of these days babe I'm a gonna be gone
If you gonna keep on keepin' on your keepin' on.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, I'm sick and tired you're doin' me like you do me
But that's what I think I have to pace
I think I'll find me a place where I'll be more appreaciated
And I'll leave you here with ache all over your face.

And if you gonna keep on your keepin' on
Hurtin' me the way you do
One of these days babe I'm a gonna be gone
If you gonna keep on keepin' on your keepin' on...
