(Anka / FranÃ§ois / Reyaux / Thibault)
D D7M And now the end is near A6 B7 And so I face the final curtain. Em Em7 My friends, I'll say it clear, A7 D I'll state my case, of which I'm certain. D7 D7+ D7 I've lived a life that's full, G Gm I've travelled each and every highway, D A7 And more, much more than this, G Gm6 D I did it my way. D D7M Regrets, I've had a few, A6 B7 But then again, too few to mention. Em Em7 I did what I had to do A7 D And saw it through without exception. D7 D7+ D7 I planned each charted course, G Gm Each careful step along the byway, D A7 And more, much more than this, G Gm6 D I did it my way. D Am7 Yes there were times, I'm sure you knew, G G/B Gm6 When I bit off more than I could chew, Em7 A7 But through it all when there was doubt F#m7 Bm7 I ate it up and spit it out. Em7 A7 I faced it all, and I stood tall G Gm6 D And did it my way. VERSE CHORDS I've loved, I've laughed and cried, I've had my fails, my share of losing, And now as tears subside I find it all so confusing To think I did all that And, may I say, not in a shy way, Oh, no, oh no, not me: I did it my way. REFRÃO For what is a man, what has he got? If not himself, then he has not To say the things he truly feels, And not the words of one who kneels. The record shows I took the blows, And did it my way.
