Here is another little way I play it with basic chords.


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

Em    G     D       C
Carry on my wayward son
Em          G          D
There'll be peace when you are done
Em       G     D       C
Lay your weary head to rest
(N.C.)
Don't you cry no more

{riff}

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

Em    G     D       C
Carry on my wayward son
Em          G          D
There'll be peace when you are done
Em       G     D       C
Lay your weary head to rest
(N.C.)
Don't you cry no more

{riff}

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

Em    G     D       C
Carry on my wayward son
Em          G          D
There'll be peace when you are done
Em       G     D       C
Lay your weary head to rest
(N.C.)                                       Bm7
Don't you cry {vocal echo: Don't you cry} no more 


Ok, so its missing alot.  Tell me something I dont already know.
I kind of grew tired of sitting here all day writing this.
Rock long, Rock hard, Rock on.
