Intro -no chords-:
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

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


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


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


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


Gm -mute-
Carry on
         Bb      F
You will always remember
Gm -mute-
Carry on
        Bb          F
Nothing equals the splendor
Cm       Bb                Ab     Ab Bb
Now your life's no longer empty
Cm     Bb                F
Surely Heaven waits for you


Gm    Bb     F       
Carry on my wayward son
Gm          Bb          F
There'll be peace when you are done
Gm       Bb     F       
Lay your weary head to rest
Gm                                       
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.
