I'll Carry On
Rich Mullins

Proverbs 1:8-9/2 Timothy 1:3-6

Cno3
   Momma, I've got two strong hands
	            /B      Am
And they're fine as far as hands go
       F2	    C/G		 C/E	  Fmaj9
I can shoulder the future, I can face the wind
	 Am7		    Gsus
For the dream that I must follow
	C2			     F/C G/C  C
It's a dream that could kill with its  beau - ty
	C2	     Cmaj7	    Am
It's a hurt that can heal with its pain
	 F2	       C2        C2/E   Fmaj7
But with all of these miles that lie before me
      Am7	      Gsus  G
I may never get home again

Chorus:
            C2			       F/C
But I'll carry the songs I learned when we were kids
     C2			    F/C
I'll carry the scars of generations gone by
     Am7	  Em		F	    G
I'll pray for you always and I promise you this
      Am7       F    G    Fmaj9
I'll carry on, I'll carry on

I kissed the earth on my daddy's grave
Said goodbye to my brave young companions
But when they hoist that sail I know my heart will break
As bright and as fine as the morning
And I don't know where this road will take me
But they say there's a place there for a man
And I'm only afraid that my dreams may betray me
And I'll never get home again

CHORUS
        Am7        F    G    C
...I'll carry on, I'll carry on

    D7	      F2		C2
And oh I can shoulder the future, I can brave the wind
    D7	      F2	         Dm9		  Gsus G
And oh, we go on, we go on but we never get home again

CHORUS (4x)

Refrain:
And I'll carry the songs (carry the songs)
And I'll carry the scars (carry the scars)
And I'll pray for you always and I promise you this, I'll carry on

REFRAIN (repeat and fade)
