Carry On Wayward Son  Kansas

Lyrics, Chords, and that awesome riff!
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

[Em]Once I [D]rose above the [C]noise and [D]confusion
[Em]Just to [D]get a glimpse [C]beyond this [D]illusion
[Am]I was [G]soaring ever [F]higher[F] [G]
[Am]But I [G]flew too [D]high
[Em]Though my [D]eyes could see I [C]still was a [D]blind man
[Em]Though my [D]mind could think I [C]still was a [D]mad man
[Am]I hear the [G]voices when I'm [F]dreaming[F] [G]
[Am]I can [G]hear them [D]say
[Em]Carry [G]on my [D]wayward [C]son
[Em]There'll be [G]peace when [D]you are done
[Em]Lay your [G]weary [D]head to [C]rest
Don't you cry no more
[Em]Masque[D]rading as a [C]man with a [D]reason
[Em]My cha[D]rade is the [C]event of the [D]season
[Am]And if I [G]claim to be a [F]wise man[F] [G]
[Am]It surely [G]means that I don't [D]know
[Em]On a [D]stormy sea of [C]moving [D]emotion
[Em]Tossed [D]about I'm like a [C]ship on the [D]ocean
[Am]I set [G]sail for winds of [F]fortune[F] [G]
[Am]But I [G]hear the voices [D]say
[Em]Carry [G]on my [D]wayward [C]son
[Em]There'll be [G]peace when [D]you are done
[Em]Lay your [G]weary [D]head to [C]rest
Don't you cry no more
Em (mute)
Carry on
You will [D]always [C]remember
Em (mute)
Carry on
Nothing [D]equals the [C]splendor
[Am]Now your [G]life's no longer [F]empty
[Am]Surely [G]Heaven waits for [D]you
[Em]Carry [G]on my [D]wayward [C]son
[Em]There'll be [G]peace when [D]you are done
[Em]Lay your [G]weary [D]head to [C]rest
