D chordD F#m chordF#m
And now the end is near
Am6 chordAm6 B7 chordB7
And so I face the final curtain
Em chordEm Em7 chordEm7
My friend Ill say it clear
A chordA D chordD
I'll state my case of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full
G chordG Gm chordGm
I've traveled each and every highway
D chordD A chordA
And more much more than this
Em chordEm D chordD
I did it my way

D chordD F#m chordF#m
Regrets I've had a few
Am6 chordAm6 B7 chordB7
But then again too few to mention
Em chordEm Em7 chordEm7
I did what I had to do
A chordA D chordD
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course
G chordG Gm chordGm
Each careful step along the byway
D chordD A chordA
But more much more than this
Em chordEm D chordD
I did it my way

Am chordAm
Yes there were times I'm sure you knew
G chordG
When I bit off more than I could chew
Em7 chordEm7 A chordA
But through it all when there was doubt
F#m chordF#m Bm chordBm
I ate it up and spit it out
Em7 chordEm7 A chordA
I faced it all and I stood tall
Em chordEm D chordD
And did it my way

I've loved I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill my share of losing
And now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that
And may I say - not in a shy way
No oh no not me
I did it my way

For what is a man what has he got
If not himself then he has naught
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

About this song

According to the My Way Songfacts, this originated as French song called Comme d'habitude (translation: "As Usual") by Claude Francois . The French version tells the story of a man, living the end of his marriage, love killed by the boredom of everyday life. Paul Anka discovered this song while visiting France, and re-wrote the lyrics as "My Way." Upon returning to the US, he gave it to Frank Sinatra, and it became one of his signature songs. Anka's lyrics changed the meaning to be about a man looking back fondly on a life he lived on his own terms.
