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

Ebm     Db              B         Db
Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Ebm      Db             B           Db
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
Abm    Gb            E        E Gb  
I was soaring ever higher
Abm    Gb        Db
But I flew too high
Ebm        Db                B           Db
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Ebm        Db                B           Db
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
Abm         Gb               E           
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming
Abm    Gb         Db
I can hear them say


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


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


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


Ebm -mute-
Carry on
         Gb      Db
You will always remember
Ebm -mute-
Carry on
        Gb          Db
Nothing equals the splendor
Abm       Gb                E     E Gb
Now your life's no longer empty
Abm     Gb                Db
Surely Heaven waits for you


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

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
