C C/B And now, the end is near, Gm/Bb A G/B A7 And so I face the final curtain. Dm F/C My friends, I'll say it clear G7/B G C I'll state my case of which I'm certain. C Gm/Bb I've lived a life that's full - F Fm/D I've travelled each and every highway. C G7 And more, much more than this, Dm/F F I did it my way. C C/B Regrets? I've had a few, Gm/Bb A G/B A7 But then again, too few to mention. Dm F/C I did what I had to do G7/B G C And saw it through without exemption. C Gm/Bb I planned each charted course - F Fm/D Each careful step along the byway, C G7 And more, much more than this, Dm/F F I did it my way. C C/B Yes, there were times, Gm/Bb A G/B A7 I'm sure you knew, Dm F/C When I bit off more G7/B G C than I could chew, C Gm/Bb But through it all, when there was doubt, F Fm/D I ate it up and spit it out. C G7 I faced it all and I stood tall Dm/F F And did it my way. C C/B I've loved, I've laughed and cried, Gm/Bb A G/B A7 I've had my fill - my share of losing. Dm F/C But now, as tears subside, G7/B G C I find it all so amusing. C Gm/Bb To think I did all that, F Fm/D And may I say, not in a shy way - C G7 Oh no. Oh no, not me. Dm/F F I did it my way. C C/B For what is a man? Gm/Bb A G/B A7 What has he got? Dm F/C If not himself G7/B G C Then he has naught. C C/B To say the things he truly feels F Fm/D And not the words of one who kneels. C G7 The record shows I took the blows Dm/F F And did it my way. Dm/F F Yes, it was my way.
