My Way è la rivisitazione in lingua inglese di una canzone francese dal titolo Comme D’Abitude. Sull’aria del pezzo, Paul Anka ha scritto il testo che Frank Sinatra ha poi cantato.
Lo stesso Paul Anka, a Parigi nel 1967 acquistò a costo zero i diritti del pezzo (non era affatto popolare come poi sarebbe divenuto) e lo propose a Sinatra.
Il testo di Anka descrive i pensieri di un uomo in fin di vita che, fiero di tutto ciò che ha fatto o realizzato, ribadisce di aver sempre agito e di continuare a farlo “a modo suo”. Inutile dire che ad oggi è considerato un classico della musica di tutti i tempi.
My Way Chords Accordi Testo
RE RE7+ And now, the end is near, RE7 SI7 And so I face the final curtain, MIm7 MIm7/RE My friend. I'll say it clear, MIm7/DO# LA7 RE I'll state my case of which I'm certain. RE RE7 I've lived a live that's full. SOL SOLm I traveled each and every highway, RE LA LA4 SOL RE And more, much more than this, I did it my... way. RE RE7+ Regrets, I've had a few, RE7 SI7 But then again, too few to mention. MIm7 MIm7/RE I did what I had to do, MIm7/DO# LA7 RE And saw it thru without exemption. RE RE7 I planned each charted course, SOL SOLm Each careful step along the byway, RE LA LA4 SOL RE And more, much more than this, I did it my... way. RE RE7 Yes there were times, I'm sure you knew, SOL SOL4 SOL When I bit off more than I could chew, MIm A7 But thru it all, when there was doubt, FA#m SIm7 I ate it up, and spit it out. MIm LA I faced it all, and I stood tall, LA4 SOL RE And did it my... way! RE RE7+ I've loved, I've laughed and cried. RE7 SI7 I've had my fill; my share of losing. MIm7 MIm7/RE And now, as tears subside, MIm7/DO# LA7 RE I find it all so amusing. RE RE7 To think I did all that; SOL SOLm And may I say - not in a shy way, RE LA L4 SOL RE "Oh no, oh no not me, I did it my... way". RE RE7 For what is a man, what has he got? SOL If not himself, then he has naught. MIm7 LA7 To say the things he truly feels; FA#m SIm7 And not the words of one who kneels. MIm7 LA The record shows I took the blows LA4 SOL RE And did it my... way!
