Intro:
Am Em F C Dm Esus E Am

    Am                       Em
Whatever the words that you hear,
 F                       C
Somehow the meaning is clear,
      Dm                      Esus  E       Am
We're all on the same ship together, moving on,

          Am                            Em
From the first time that life could be heard,
        F                         C
To the last sounds of men on this earth, 
     Dm                     Esus   E           F
The question is always the same, where are we going, where are we going?

Fmaj7     Am
Ooh carry on, carry on,
           F              E
There's a silver light beside you,
          Dm                   G
Take the hand that's there to guide you,
              F                 Esus  E
Through this night to where we came from,
      Am
Carry on, carry on,
         F                  Esus
When the autumn leaves are falling,
         Dm              G            F
And you hear the voices calling you away,
             G                 Am
Then do not fear, you'll carry on,

 Am                      Em
Love is the daughter of life, 
 F                        C
Comfort to trouble and strife,
      Dm                    Esus   E      Am
She's always beside you to help you carry on,

         Am                         Em
Oh they say that the stars in the sky,
         F                       C
Are the souls of the people who died,
         Dm                      Esus E         F
Will we meet them again when we reach our destination?

                                           [Translation]
Sratseht rofesruo cates,                   set a course for the stars
Nwonknu no it anitsed,                     destination unknown
Dlroweht gnillacsi esrevinu eht,           the universe is calling the world
Ecalp gnitser lanif dnatsal rehs-drawot,   towards her last and final resting place

Fmaj7     Am
Ooh carry on, carry on,
           F              E
There's a silver light beside you,
          Dm                   G
Take the hand that's there to guide you,
              F                 Esus  E
Through this night to where we came from,
      Am
Carry on, carry on,
         F                  Esus
When the autumn leaves are falling,
         Dm              G            F
And you hear the voices calling you away,
             G                 Am
Then do not fear, you'll carry on, carry on,
                Am    F     Am    F
Carry on, carry on, oooh, oooh, oooh,
Fmaj7     Am Em F C Dm Esus E Am  Am Em F C Dm Esus E Am  Am Em F C Dm Esus E Am
Ooh carry on...
