.          D                      Dmaj7
And now, the end is near,
.                D7                   B7
And so I face the final curtain,
.         Em7                  Em7/D
My friend. I’ll say it clear,
.                      Em7/C# A7            D
I’ll state my case of which I’m certain.
.        D                            D7
I’ve lived a live that’s full.
.                   G                        Gm
I traveled each and every highway,
.         D                                        A        Asus4 G   D
And more, much more than this, I did it my way.


.       D                       Dmaj7
Regrets, I’ve had a few,
.                 D7                           B7
But then again, too few to mention.
.  Em7                       Em7/D
I did what I had to do,
.                   Em7/C#  A7     D
And saw it thru without exemption.
.     D                                  D7
I planned each charted course,
.                        G                       Gm
Each careful step along the byway,
.          D                                       A     Asus4    G   D
And more, much more than this, I did it my way.


.                            D                                  D7
Yes there were times, I’m sure you knew,
.                     G                                      Gsus4 G
When I bit off more than I could chew,
.                  Em                         A7
But thru it all, when there was doubt,
.           F#m                   Bm7
I ate it up, and spit it out.
.               Em                       A
I faced it all, and I stood tall,
.       Asus4   G   D
And did it my way.


.       D                        Dmaj7
I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried.
.               D7                         B7
I’ve had my fill; my share of losing.
.    Em7                        Em7/D
And now, as tears subside,
.             Em7/C# A7 D
I find it all so amusing.
.    D                          D7
To think I did all that;
.                     G                        Gm
And may I say  not in a shy way,
.      D      A            Asus4          G  D
“No, oh no not me, I did it my way”.


.                          D                            D7
For what is a man, what has he got?
.                        G
If not himself, then he has naught.
.                Em7                       A7
To say the things he truly feels;
.                      F#m                         Bm7
And not the words of one who kneels.
.                      Em7                        A                Asus4   G   D
The record shows I took the blows – And did it my way!
