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

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


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


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


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


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


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

  1. I love how like all of the people who left comments are Supernatural fans lol…that may or may not be the reason I looked this up too

  2. in the chorus i think its nice to play –Am G C F– then –Am G C Dm– ( x2 )

  3. If you play (E -3-5-7-3) on the e string after each verse, you get the g chord riff, if that make any sense.
