"My Way" is a song with lyrics written by Paul Anka and popularized by Frank Sinatra in 1969. According to Wikipedia, "the melody is based on a French song "Comme d'habitude" composed by Claude Fran├žois and Jacques Revaux." This version was recorded as I was getting over a sore throat. In the last verse I nearly choked while singing the line "and not the words", but I wasn't going to do it all again.

 

Lyrics and chords

C                            Em                   Gm7               A7  

And now, the end is near   And so I face the final curtain. 

       Dm                   Dm7                   G7                     C 

My friend, I'll say it clear I'll state my case of which I'm certain. 

                               C7                F                       Fm 

I've lived a life that's full I travelled each and every highway 

        C                                G7             Dm      C 

And more, much more than this, I did it my        way. 

 

C                          Em                Gm7                   A7 

Regrets, I've had a few But then again too few to mention. 

   Dm                   Dm7             G7                      C 

I did what I had to do And saw it through, without exemption. 

                                     C7                         F                      Fm 

I planned each charted course Each careful step, along the byway 

        C                                 G7             Dm      C 

And more, much more than this, I did it my       way. 

 

            C                                                    C7 

Yes there were times, I'm sure you knew,  

                  F                                  

When I bit off  more than I could chew 

                                   Dm7                    G7 

But through it all, when there was doubt 

            Em7               Am 

 I ate it up, and spit it out, 

               Dm7                      G7 

I faced it all,       And I stood tall,  

                Dm      C 

And did it my       way. 

 

         C                             Em                    Gm7                  A7 

I've loved, I've laughed and cried I've had my fill, my share of losing. 

        Dm                Dm7                   G7       C 

And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing. 

                             C7                F                     Fm 

To think, I did all that, And may I say, "not in a shy way", 

       C                 G7            Dm      C 

Oh no, oh no not me, I did it my      way. 

 

             C                                             C7 

For what is a man, what has he got,  

            F 

If not himself, then he has not, 

                  Dm7                 G7 

To say the things, he truly feels,  

                    Em7                       Am 

And not the words of one who kneels. 

                   Dm7                    G7 

The record shows, I took the blows,  

                  Dm    C 

And did it my      way..
