    Released: June 1970

This Way Is My Way is the second studio album by Anne Murray released in 1969 on Capitol Records. Initially the album was only available in Canada, and was later made available in the U.S after Murray's chart success there in the 1970s. The album included recordings of songs by Eric Andersen, Gene MacLellan and Bob Dylan. A single release of "Snowbird" would be issued in the U.S. in 1970, where it would reach the top ten and trigger Murray's career there. The album peaked at No.13 on the Canadian RPM album chart on 20 February 1971.

Buddy Cage plays pedal steel guitar on this album. He went on to join the New Riders of the Purple Sage. The album cover features Murray sitting at the base of Albion Falls in Hamilton, Ontario.
