Elvis Presley (words by Paul Anka, song Comme d'habitude, Jacques Revaux)

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

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

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

C                       Em
I've loved, I ve laughed and cried,
            E7                A7
I ve had my fill; my share of losing.
    Dm               Dm7
And now, as tears subside,

G7      C
I find it all so amusing.
   C               C7
To think I did all that;
    F                    Fm
and may I say   not in a shy way,
   C          G7
oh no, no not me,
         Dm C
I did it my way.

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

About the artist behind My Way Chords:

Elvis Aaron Presley[1][2] (January 8, 1935–August 16, 1977), sometimes written Aron,a was an American singer, musician and actor. He is considered a cultural icon, sometimes referred to as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll", or simply "The King".

Presley began his career as one of the first performers of rockabilly, an uptempo fusion of country and rhythm and blues with a strong back beat. His novel versions of existing songs, mixing "black" and "white" sounds, made him popular—and controversial—as did his uninhibited stage and television performances. He recorded songs in the rock and roll genre, with tracks like "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock" later embodying the style. Presley had a versatile voice and had unusually wide success encompassing other genres, including gospel, blues, ballads and pop. To date, he has been inducted into four music halls of fame.

In the 1960s, Presley made the majority of his thirty-one movies—mainly poorly reviewed, but financially successful, musicals. In 1968, he returned with acclaim to live music in a television special, and thereafter performed across the U.S., notably in Las Vegas. Throughout his career, he set records for concert attendance, television ratings and recordings sales. He is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in the history of popular music. Health problems plagued Presley in later life which, coupled with a punishing tour schedule and addiction to prescription medication, led to his premature death at age 42.
