My Way by Frank Sinatra
Wednesday, Jun 13, 2007 from Milton, Delaware
Of all the CDs people have given me to listen to on the road there is one song from my friend Jen H. that has become of my favorites. This was a big dream and so many of the words in this song hit the spot such as: “Tnd is near” (of my trip) and of coruse “I’ve traveled each and every highway; and more, much more than this, I did it my way.” It couldn’t be truer than that. I took my dream and did it my way. Graduated from college and did it my way.
================ My Way by Frank Sinatra
And now, the end is near; And so I face the final curtain. My friend, Ill say it clear, Ill state my case, of which Im certain.
Ive lived a life thats full. Ive traveled each and evry highway; And more, much more than this, I did it my way.
Regrets, Ive 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, But more, much more than this, I did it my way.
Yes, there were times, Im 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.
Ive loved, Ive laughed and cried. Ive 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 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!

Wow, that has spiritual connotations, as well as a good fit for your trip and experiences. Also, it's just a fun song to sing as you're driving along by yourself!! LOL Kinda sad to think you're on the "end" of the trip--
