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

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


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


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


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


Gbm -mute-
Carry on
         A      E
You will always remember
Gbm -mute-
Carry on
        A          E
Nothing equals the splendor
Bm       A                G     G A
Now your life's no longer empty
Bm     A                E
Surely Heaven waits for you


Gbm    A     E       
Carry on my wayward son
Gbm          A          E
There'll be peace when you are done
Gbm       A     E       
Lay your weary head to rest
Gbm                                       
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.
