    D               Dmaj7
And now, the end is near,
         D7            B7
And so I face the final curtain,
    Em7                Em7   
My friend. I'll say it clear,
             Em7      A7       D
I'll stay my case of which I'm certain.
     D                   D7
I've lived a live that's full.
            G             Gm
I traveled each and every highway,
    D                    A       Asus4  Ebmaj7      D
And more, much more than this, I did it myyyyyyy way.


    D               Dmaj7
Regrets, I've had a few,
         D7                B7
But then again, too few to mention.
  Em7               Em7  
I did what I had to do,
           Em7      A7    D
And saw it thru without exemption.
  D                    D7
I planned each charted course,
             G              Gm
Each careful step along the byway,
    D                    A       Asus4  Ebmaj7      D
And more, much more than this, I did it myyyyyyy way.


               D                   D7
Yes there were times, I'm sure you knew,
           G                     Gsus4 G
When I bit off more than I could chew,
            Em               A7
But thru it all, when there was doubt,
         Gb               Bm7
I ate it up, and spit it out.
           Em               A
I faced it all, and I stood tall,
    Asus4  Ebmaj7      D
And did it myyyyyyy 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 myyyy 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 myyyy way!

Hey there, so I was playing this song in front of my mother (who happens to have a degree in music) and she pointed out to me that Ebmaj7 on “my” sounded off. I tested out a bunch of other chords, and we found that Gm not only sounds better, but gives the song a bittersweet feel, which is how Mr. Sinatra intended it to be. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment, and I hope it helps! :)

cherry.pie

i agree with the person above, Ebmaj7 sounds weird, and Gm sounds better

HungaHunga

Yep, it’s definitely more likely Gm in the original, or you make it Gm6, which adds the note E to the chord, E being the note you sing in the melody with the word “my”. But you can “do it your way” too… :p

Ma ma ma Music

I think it’s even better if you start off with a g and move into the Gm.

Ma ma ma Music

It’s even better yet if you play G Gm GmM7 Gm6 D on the last part

Lunatic ??

For anyone wondering, for the way mxmtoon played it I’m fairly sure she used -5 so go nuts <3

Misty

In my opinion playing Em7 sounds better than Ebmaj7

Hi, same as the person before me, I’d really appreciate if you added the rest of the chords. There’s lots of chords here so it’s not easy to remember and I like to sing along so I can’t scroll back up cos I need the lyrics.

Ebmaj7 sounds weird, but the best one that I’ve found is GEEB. Hold down on the 2nd string (normally C), 4th fret and 4th string (normally A), second fret. That’s the best chord that I’ve found. It fits in very nicely.

kasia

also for -2, i find switching the Dbmaj7 on “my” to just Dm sounds really nice as well.

Mary Lou F Rivera

Need strumming techniques.

cassie

use dd-d-du

Gazelle.D

Cm is good on “my” for +5

banry

what a lovely song!
(+5 is easier to play)

Bookqueen
