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

{repeat once each time played}

Em D C D
Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Em D C D
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
Am G F F G
I was soaring ever higher
Am G D
But I flew too high
Em D C D
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Em D C D
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
Am G F F G
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming
Am G D
I can hear them say

Em G D C
Carry on my wayward son
Em G D
There'll be peace when you are done
Em G D C
Lay your weary head to rest
(NC)
Don't you cry no more

Em D C D
Masquerading as a man with a reason
Em D C D
My charade is the event of the season
Am G F F G
And if I claim to be a wise man
Am G D
It surely means that I don't know
Em D C D
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Em D C D
Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean
Am G F F G
I set sail for winds of fortune
Am G D
But I hear the voices say

Em G D C
Carry on my wayward son
Em G D
There'll be peace when you are done
Em G D C
Lay your weary head to rest
(NC)
Don't you cry no more

Em (mute)
Carry on
D C
You will always remember
Em (mute)
Carry on
D C
Nothing equals the splendor
Am G F
Now your life's no longer empty
Am G D
Surely Heaven waits for you

Em G D C
Carry on my wayward son
Em G D
There'll be peace when you are done
Em G D C
Lay your weary head to rest
(NC) Bm7
Don't you cry {vocal echo: Don't you cry} no more
