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

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


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


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


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


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


Abm    B     Gb       
Carry on my wayward son
Abm          B          Gb
There'll be peace when you are done
Abm       B     Gb       
Lay your weary head to rest
Abm                                       
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.
