My Way

{t:My Way}

{st:Elvis Presley}

And [C]now, the end is [Em]near;
and so I [E7]face the final [A7]curtain.
My [Dm]friend, I ll say it [Dm7]clear,
I ll state my [G7]case, of which I m [C]certain.
I ve [C]lived a life that s [C7]full,
I ve traveled [F]each and every [Fm]highway
And [C]more, much more than [G7]this,
I did it [Dm]my [C]way.

Re[C]grets, I ve had a [Em]few;
but then a[E7]gain, too few to [A7]mention.
I [Dm]did what I had to [Dm7]do,
and saw it [G7]through without ex[C]emption.
I [C]planned each charted [C7]course,
each careful [F]step along the [Fm]byway
And [C]more, much more than [G7]this,
I did it [Dm]my [C]way.

Yes, there were [C]times, I m sure you [C7]knew,
when I bit [F]off more than I could [F7]chew.
But through it [Dm7]all, when there was [G7]doubt,
I ate it [E7]up and spit it [Am]out.
I faced it [Dm7]all and I stood [G7]tall;
and did it [Dm]my [C]way.

I’ve [C]loved, I ve laughed and [Em]cried,
I ve had my [E7]fill; my share of [A7]losing.
And [Dm]now, as tears sub[Dm7]side,
I find it [G7]all so a[C]musing.
To [C]think I did all [C7]that;
and [F]may I say   not in a [Fm]shy way,
oh [C]no, no not [G7]me,
I did it [Dm]my [C]way.

For what is a [C]man, what has he [C7]got?
If not him[F]self, then he has [F7]naught.
To say the [Dm7]words he truly [G7]feels;
and not the [E7]words of one who [Am]kneels.
The record [Dm7]shows I took the [G7]blows,
and did it [Dm]my [C]way.
