Carry on My Wayward Son Lyrics

Carry on my wayward son
For there’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond the illusion
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I’m dreamin’, I can hear them say

Carry on my Wayward Son Cover

Carry on my wayward son
For there’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don’t know
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I’m like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune,…

Watch Neoni sing their version of Carry on My Wayward Son. This version would have been so perfect for the Supernatural TV Series. They describe their music as dark and dramatic which reflects on this cover. Great work turning this song into their own. The duo is sisters Caitlin and Sidney Powell. They started their music practically all their lives, but professionally, in 2013 under a band name called Facing West. They eventually changed it to Neoni which meant ‘zero’ in Scots Gaelic. It reminds the girls how they started and keeps them rooted.

Peter Hollens feat. Stevie T.

Watch Peter Hollens in his Carry on My Wayward Son cover. This video is a one-man show, my friends. Well, almost. Great job with the guitar there, by the way, Stevie T!

We’re sure you’d love to watch more of his videos after this.

Leo Moracchioli feat. Truls Haugen

Watch Leo Moracchioli in this fun video of his Carry on My Wayward Son cover. Yes, he sings metal but the video isn’t as heavy as the music. This video is amusing to watch but nevertheless still gets you headbanging. This is one fantastic cover and will surely be in our list of favorites. And as usual, we just have to compliment both their insane guitar shredding.
