There are obviously a lot of parts in this song. I tried my best to balance clarity and brevity.
Please comment if any parts or notations are unclear.

-Verse 2-
There's a harbor lost within the reeds
A jetty caught in overhanging trees
Among the bones of cormorants
No boot mark here, nor fingerprints
The rivers roll down to a soundless sea
Come and see...


   Come and see...

-Chorus-
** Rhythm: |-X-x-x-X-x-x-X-x-| All Downstrokes **

    Em        D        Cadd9
The tides all come and go witnessed by no waking eye

Em     D                    Cadd9
   The willows mark the wind

    Em     D        Cadd9
And all we know for sure amidst this fading light

Em        D                 Cadd9
    We'll not go home again

         B7      Cadd9
Come and... see...

         B7      Cadd9   Dadd9
Come and... see... 


-Repeat Intro-

-Verse 3-
In the lowlands nestled in the heath
A briar cradle rocks its babe to sleep
Its contents watched by Sycorax
And Patagon in parallax
A foretold rumbling sounds below the deep
Come and see...
Come and see...


-Repeat Chorus-
The tides all come and go witnessed by no waking eye
The willows mark the wind
And all we know for sure amidst this fading light
We'll not go home again
Come and see...
Come and see...

"The weight upon your eyelids, is dimes laid on your eyes."
