Original Key: B


Intro:
B     A     C♯m     E
[Repeat]
Verse 1:
B                      F♯m
  Sometimes I hear you calling
E                       B
  I turn but you're not there
                         F♯m
My heart is pierced with longing
E                       B
  I wish that you were here
Chorus:
B            C♯
  Rolling waves of sorrow
E           B
  Rivers of grief
                      C♯
In the valley of the shadow
E                    B
  I feel you walking with me
                B    A       G♯m    E
Saying carry on,       carry on
Verse 2:
B                     F♯m
  I hear you in their voices
E                    B
  I see you in their eyes
             F♯m
A melody of another time
E                 B
  An echo of your life
Bridge:
F♯m                E            B
  There is another country far away
                       F♯m
And I know that I will find you there
          E                G          A
But until that day, I sing holy I cry holy
                 B
And I'm gonna carry on
Link:
B     C♯     E     B
[Rpt then to Ch.]
Chorus 2:
B             C♯
  Rolling waves of sorrow
E            B
  Rivers of grief
                        C♯
In the valley of the shadow
E                B
  My soul will find release
              B   A        G♯m   E
So I carry on,      carry on
                   B    A        G♯m  E
I'm gonna carry on,       carry on 

Sometimes I hear you calling
I turn but you’re not there
My heart is pierced with longing
I wish that you were here

Rolling waves of sorrow
Rivers of grief
In the valley of the shadow
I feel you walking with me
Saying carry on

I hear you in their voices
I see you in their eyes
A melody of another time
An echo of your life

Rolling waves of sorrow
Rivers of grief
In the valley of the shadow
I feel you walking with me
Saying carry on, carry on

There is another country far away
And I know that I will
Find you there
But until that day
I sing holy I cry holy
And I’m gonna carry on

Rolling waves of sorrow
Rivers of grief
In the valley of the shadow
I feel you walking with me

Rolling waves of sorrow
Rivers of grief
In the valley of the shadow
My soul will find release
