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

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


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


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


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


Fm -mute-
Carry on
         Ab      Eb
You will always remember
Fm -mute-
Carry on
        Ab          Eb
Nothing equals the splendor
Bbm       Ab                Gb     Gb Ab
Now your life's no longer empty
Bbm     Ab                Eb
Surely Heaven waits for you


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