ACT NATURALLY – Guitar Lesson

Based on a joking remark he made to his girlfriend, song writer Johnny Russell couldn't get anyone interested enough to record this eventual #1 Billboard Hit! That is until it was presented to Buck Owens & the Buckaroos. Later covered by Ringo Starr of The Beatles, here's your Act Naturally guitar lesson!

D                                            G
     They're gonna put me in the movies
     D                                                         A7
     They're gonna make a big star out of me
     D                                                              G
We'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely

A7                          stop             D
And all I have to do is act naturally

CHORUS
    A7                                       D

Well, I bet you I'm gonna be a big star
     A7                                                 D
Might win an Oscar you can never tell
     A7                                            D
The movie's gonna make me a big star,
     E7                                    A7
'Cause I can play the part so well

Well, I hope you come and see me in the movie
Then I'll know that you will plainly see
The biggest fool that ever hit the big time
And all I have to do is act naturally
We'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely
Begging down upon his bended knee
I'll play the part but I won't need rehearsing
All I have to do is act naturally
CHORUS
