    D                 D/C# 
And now,   the end is near,
         D/C              B7      
And so I face   the final curtain,
   Em                    Em/D  
My friend    I'll say it clear,
I'll stay my case
             D4      D
of which I'm certain. 
     D     Dmaj7              D7    D
I've lived      a live that's full.  
            G               Em      
I travelled each  and every highway,
    D/A                    A7  
And more,   much more than this
A        G/D       D   
I did it     my    way.

   D                  D/C#
Regrets,   I've had a few,
         D/C                 B7      
But then again,   too few to mention.
  Em                   Em/D
I did    what I had to do, 
           A7              D4       D
And saw it thru   without exemption. 
   D      Dmaj7             D7      D
I planned      each charted course,  
              G               Em    
Each careful step   along the byway,
    D/A                    A4  
And more,   much more than this
A        G/D   D   
I did it my    way.

A7             D     Dmaj7
Yes there were times,     
I'm sure you knew,
When I bit off
more than I could chew,
But thru it all,
               A      A/G
when there was doubt,    
         F#m               Bm  
I ate it up,   and spit it out.
           Em                  A    
I faced it all,    and I stood tall,
           G/D   D   
And did it my    way.

     D                          D/C# 
I've loved,   I've laughed and cried.
I've had my fill
my share of   losing.
    Em               Em/D    
And now,    as tears subside,
          A7          D4     D
I find it all     so amusing. 
   D      Dmaj7           D7   D
To think        I did all that  
        G                 Em      
And may I say    not in a shy way,
    D/A            A4  A
"Oh no   oh no not me,  
        G/D    D    
I did it    my way".

    A         D    Dmaj7
For what is a man,      
            D7   D
what has he got?  
If not himself,  then he has naught.
      G/F# Em    
To say the things   
         A7     A/G
he truly feels     
And not the words
of one who kneels.
           Em                  A   
The record shows   I took the blows
           G/D   D  
and did it my    way

A            G/D   D  
Yes it was   my    way
