MY WAY (p. anka, j. revaux, g. thibault, c. frankois)
C Em7/B and now, the end is near;
Em7/Bb A7 A and so i face the final curtain.
Dm Dm/C my friend, ill say it clear,
G7/B /G Csus4 C ill state my case, of which im certain.
C Cmaj7 C9 C7b9 ive lived a life thats full.
Fadd9 F FmMaj7 Fm6 ive traveled each and evry highway;
C Cadd9 G7sus4 G and more, much more than this,
C Em7/B regrets, ive had a few;
Em7/Bb A7 A but then again, too few to mention.
Dm Dm/C i did what i had to do
G7/B /G Csus4 C and saw it through without exemption.
C Cmaj7 C9 C7b9 i planned each charted course;
Fadd9 F FmMaj7 Fm6 each careful step along the byway,
C Cadd9 G7sus4 G but more, much more than this,
C Cmaj7 C9 C7b9 yes, there were times, i'm sure you knew
Fadd9 F FmMaj7 Fm6 when i bit off more than i could chew.
Dm7 Dm G7 G but through it all, when there was doubt,
Em7 Em Am7 Am i ate it up and spit it out.
Dm G i faced it all and i stood tall;
C Em7/B ive loved, ive laughed and cried
Em7/Bb A7 A ive had my fill; my share of losing.
Dm Dm/C and now, as tears subside,
G7/B /G Csus4 C i find it all so amusing.
C Cmaj7 C9 C7b9 to think i did all that;
Fadd9 F FmMaj7 Fm6 and may i say not in a shy way,
C Cadd9 G7sus4 G oh no, oh no not me,
C Cmaj7 C9 C7b9 for what is a man, what has he got?
Fadd9 F FmMaj7 Fm6 if not himself, then he has naught.
Dm7 Dm G7 G to say the things he truly feels;
Em7 Em Am7 Am and not the words of one who kneels.
Dm G the record shows i took the blows
