Foo Fighters - Carry On My Wayward Son (Kansas Version)

(Normal Tuning)

 

 

(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

{repeat once each time played}

 

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
