Frank Sinatra Song My Way Demo Lyrics Chords & Pdf
To say there are a few chords in this song would be an understatement as you can see from this list: A capo 2nd fret is the original key.
Don't be intimidated by some of these chords as a few are simply a one finger move on the fretboard from a familiar chord you're already playing.
The rhythm on this one is a pretty simple root up down up with a few runs between the chords. As you get near the end you can put in some shuffle strumming to build up the ending.
I've added a bit of picking near the end following the orchestration as best as I could.
My Way Lyrics
And now, the end is near - And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear - I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full - I traveled each - and every highway
And more, much more than this ---- I did it my way
Regrets, I've had a few - But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do - and saw it through - without exemption
I planned each charted course, each careful step - along the byway
And more, much more than this, I did it my way
Yes, there were times --- I'm sure you knew
When I bit off - more than I could chew
But through it all - when there was doubt - I ate it up - and spit it out
I faced it all - and I stood tall - 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
Oh, 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
Yes - it was my way
