​In My Fashion

This song is by Gordon Lightfoot and appears on the album Shadows (1982) and on the compilation album Songbook (1999).

In my fashion I have been a good man
I have loved and I have lost
Ever after I will be remembered
In my fashion, in my way
There have been times, I have seen the reaper
In the bad times, and in the good
I have bent down, I have touched the ground
Saying prayers and touching wood

In my fashion, I have been a father
I have loved and been loved in return
From the ashes, I have kept the homefires
Burning after all was said and done

Now take a look at me
Do I look like the kind of guy
The kinda fool who went to school
And had to stand on a stool,
Because he couldn't come t' terms with a slide rule
Take a look around again
Is it any different now than it was then

In my fashion I have been a good man
I have loved and I have lost
And ever after I will be remembered
In my fashion, in my way
