Intro: C C Em And now the end is near, Gm A7 and so I face the final curtain. Dm Dm7 My friends, I'll say it clear, G7 C I'll state my case, of which I'm certain. C C7 I've lived a life that's full, F Fm I traveled each and every highway, C G F C And more, much more than this, I did it my way C Em Regrets, I've had a few, Gm A7 but then again, too few to mention. Dm Dm7 I did what I had to do G7 C and saw it thru without exemption. C C7 I planned each chartered course, F Fm each carefull step along the by way. C G F C And more, much more than this, I did it my way C C7 Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew, F Fm when I bit off more than I could chew, Dm7 G But thru it all, when there was doubt, Em Am I ate it up, and spit it out. Dm7 G F C I faced it all, and I stood tall and did it my way. C Em I've loved, I've laughed and cried, Gm A7 I've had my fill, my share of losing, Dm Dm7 And now, as tears subside, G7 C I find it all so amusing C C7 To think I did all that, F Fm and may I say, not in a shy way, C G F 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 G To say the things he truly feels, Em Am And not the words of one who kneels? Dm7 G F C The record shows I took the blows and did it my way. Dm7 G F C The record shows I took the blows and did it my way.
