Carry On My Wayward Son

Year: 1999 - Album: The Best of Kansas

	  		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     G Am      G         D 
I was soaring ever higher ,  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       G Am     G         D 
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming   I can hear them say  
Em    G     D       C   {Chorus} 
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  
  
Don't you cry no more Em D C  D....2 TIMES   
  
  
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       G Am           G 
And if I claim to be a wise man   It surely means  
            D 
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      G Am                      D 
I set sail for winds of fortune   but I hear the voice's say  
  
{Chorus}  
{RIFF}A-757 D5 A757 D7 G474 D757 A5 D7 A5  

Em   {mute}    D                C 
Carry on       You will allways remember  
Em  {mute}        D          C  
carry on       nothing equals the splendor  
Am       G                F       Am     G                D 
Now your life's no longer empty   surely heaven waits for you.  
Em    G     D       C   Em          G          D 
Carry on my wayward son There'll be peace when you are done  
Em       G     D       C 
Lay your weary head to rest AND don't you cry don't you cry  
   Bm7 
no more....
