I pieced this one together out of many (partially correct) tabs and by listening 
and playing along to the original. Hope this helps!


    D             Dmaj7           D7            B7
And now the end is near, and so I face the final curtain;
    Em                 Em7/D                Em7 C#    A7      D
My friend, I'll say it clear, I'll state my case of which I'm certain.
     D                   D7                  G              Gm
I've lived a life that's full, I've traveled each and every highway,
    D                    A       Asus4  Emaj7 D  D
And more, much more than this, I did it m_____y  way.

[Verse 2]

    D               Dmaj7          D7                B7
Regrets? I've had a few...but then again, too few to mention;
  Em7               Em7/D          Em7 C#      A7    D
I did what I had to do, and saw it through without exemption.
  D                    D7                   G              Gm
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway;
    D                    A         Asus4  Emaj7 D  D
But more, much more than this,   I did it m_____y  way.

[Verse 3]

                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 through it all, when there was doubt,
         F#              Bm7
I ate it up and spit it out.
           Em               A         Asus4  Emaj7 D  D
I faced it all, and I stood tall, and did it m_____y  way.

[Verse 4]

   D                      Dm7               D7               B7
I've loved, I've laughed and cried; I've had my fill, my share of losing.
    Em              Em7/D         Em7 C#    A7    D
And now, as tears subside, I find it all    so amusing.
    D               D7               G             Gm
To think, I did all that...and may I say, not in a shy way,
    D              A        Asus4  Emaj7 D  D
Oh no,    oh no not me,    I did it m_____y  way.

[Verse 5]

     D                   D7
For what is a man? What has he got?
         G                  Gsus4 G
If not himself, then he has naught.           
           Em              A7
To say the things he truly feels, 
            F#m              Bm7
And not the words of one who kneels;
           Em7              A7        Asus4  Emaj7 D  D
The record shows I took the blows and did it m_____y  way.

Excellent tab. Have some trouble with some of the progressions, such as the Em7, C# that doesn't quite sound right, but that may very well be my problem.

Em7 to C# should be Em7/C#, or better yet, Em7/Db. It would look like 022020.

022020 is not Em7/C#, the shape you suggest is a straight forward Em6, and you aren't indicating the C# in the bass. For the progression in the song play Em6/C# = x42000
