Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

AmAm chord     GG chord              FF chord         GG chord
Once I rose above the noise and confusion
AmAm chord      GG chord             FF chord           GG chord
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
DmDm chord    CC chord            BbBb chord        BbBb chord CC chord  
I was soaring ever higher
DmDm chord    CC chord        GG chord
But I flew too high
AmAm chord        GG chord                FF chord           GG chord
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
AmAm chord        GG chord                FF chord           GG chord
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
DmDm chord         CC chord               BbBb chord           
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming
DmDm chord    CC chord         GG chord
I can hear them say


AmAm chord    CC chord     GG chord       
Carry on my wayward son
AmAm chord          CC chord          GG chord       
There'll be peace when you are done
AmAm chord       CC chord     GG chord       
Lay your weary head to rest
AmAm chord
Don't you cry no more


AmAm chord    GG chord           FF chord          GG chord
Masquerading as a man with a reason
AmAm chord    GG chord           FF chord            GG chord
My charade is the event of the season
DmDm chord       CC chord             BbBb chord           BbBb chord CC chord
And if I claim to be a wise man
DmDm chord        CC chord                  GG chord
It surely means that I don't know
AmAm chord   GG chord             FF chord      GG chord
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
AmAm chord     GG chord                FF chord           GG chord
Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean
DmDm chord    CC chord                 BbBb chord         BbBb chord CC chord
I set sail for winds of fortune
DmDm chord    CC chord               GG chord
But I hear the voices say


AmAm chord    CC chord     GG chord       
Carry on my wayward son
AmAm chord          CC chord          GG chord
There'll be peace when you are done
AmAm chord       CC chord     GG chord       
Lay your weary head to rest
AmAm chord
Don't you cry no more


AmAm chord -mute-
Carry on
         CC chord      GG chord
You will always remember
AmAm chord -mute-
Carry on
        CC chord          GG chord
Nothing equals the splendor
DmDm chord       CC chord                BbBb chord     BbBb chord CC chord
Now your life's no longer empty
DmDm chord     CC chord                GG chord
Surely Heaven waits for you


AmAm chord    CC chord     GG chord       
Carry on my wayward son
AmAm chord          CC chord          GG chord
There'll be peace when you are done
AmAm chord       CC chord     GG chord       
Lay your weary head to rest
AmAm chord                                       
Don't you cry no more
