Carry on My Wayward Son by Kansas
Chords and Main Riff


N.C.
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

[Verse 1]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse 2]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Bridge]

Am (mute)
Carry on
         C      G
You will always remember
Am (mute)
Carry on
        C          G
Nothing equals the splendor
Dm       C                Bb     Bb C
Now your life's no longer empty
Dm     C                G
Surely Heaven waits for you


[Chorus/Outro]

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

Starting riff is actually more like this. Otherwise this tab is a good one man acoustic aproximation of the real thing.

The lines of the chorus should have an F at the end.

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