Right Align button in horizontal LinearLayout

Just a quick stupid question. If you look at the attached image. I need my button to be right aligned but for some reason it's not working with 'gravity:right'...

enter image description here

Here's my code for that layout:

<LinearLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:orientation="horizontal"
android:layout_marginTop="35dp">

<TextView
android:id="@+id/lblExpenseCancel"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="@string/cancel"
android:textColor="#404040"
android:layout_marginLeft="10dp"
android:textSize="20sp"
android:layout_marginTop="9dp" />

<Button
android:id="@+id/btnAddExpense"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="45dp"
android:background="@drawable/stitch_button"
android:layout_marginLeft="10dp"
android:text="@string/add"
android:layout_gravity="right"
android:layout_marginRight="15dp" />

</LinearLayout>


Why is no working?! Thanks guys...

Use Following Code for that

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_marginTop="35dp"
    android:orientation="horizontal" >

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/lblExpenseCancel"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginLeft="10dp"
        android:layout_marginTop="9dp"
        android:text="@string/cancel"
        android:textColor="#404040"
        android:textSize="20sp" />

    <Button
        android:id="@+id/btnAddExpense"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="45dp"
        android:layout_alignParentRight="true"
        android:layout_marginLeft="10dp"
        android:layout_marginRight="15dp"
