Kansas - Carry On My Wayward Son tab

this is a great song.  i am a new guitarist, so some of the tabs posted here 
are tough for me.   so, ive decided to post some songs that i like which are 
easier to play, yet still accurate.  i've posted some songs that are just chords
but this time i am posting the tabs.  it sounds the same as in the song, but if
there are any corrections or questions, just email me at


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    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          F G   Am     G         D
i hear the voices when i'm dreaming,        i can hear them say...

Em     G     D      C    Em          G          D
carry on my wayward son, there'll be peace when you are done
Em       G      D       C     N.C
lay your weary head to rest       dont you cry no more

Em      D         C           D
masquerdaing as a man with a reason
Em      D          C           D
my charade is the event of the season
Am        G             F        F G Am         G                 D
and if i claim to be a wise man      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 Am     G              D
i set a course for winds of fortune,     but i hear the voices say......


Em                 G       D
Carry on, you will always remember
Em                 G         D
Carry on, nothing equals the splendor
Am                        F     F G Am     G                 D
now your life's no longer empty,    surely heaven waits for you

Chorus minus last line
N.C.            Bm7
dont you cry no more
