You Do Your Thing is the fourth studio album by American country music duo Montgomery Gentry. It was released in 2004 (see 2004 in country music) and has been certified platinum by the RIAA. The album produced the duo's first Number One hit on the Billboard country music charts in "If You Ever Stop Loving Me"; other singles included the title track, "Gone", and "Something to Be Proud Of" (also a Number One).

"If It's the Last Thing I Do" was also recorded by Brooks & Dunn on their 2001 album, Steers & Stripes, and in 2004 by James Otto on his album Days of Our Lives. Both of these renditions were titled "The Last Thing I Do".
