"Come Away Death"
From William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night"
Capo 1st fret


F                       C
Come away, come away, death 
Dm                      Bb
And in sad cypress let me be laid. 
F                       C
Fly away, fly away, breath; 
Dm                          Bb
I am slain by a fair cruel maid 

F                                   C
My shroud of white, stuck all with yew 
Bb             
O, prepare it 
F                             C
My part of death, no one so true 
Bb         
Did share it 

F                            C
Not a flower, not a flower sweet 
Dm                             Bb    
On my black coffin let there be strown 
F                            C
Not a friend, not a friend greet 
Dm                                      Bb    
My poor corpse, where my bones shall be thrown 

F                              C
A thousand thousand sighs to save 
Bb             
Lay me, O, where 
F                              C
Sad true lover never find my grave 
Bb             
To weep there 

F                       C
Come away, come away, death, 
Dm                            Bb
And in sad cypress let me be laid 
F                      C
Fly away, fly away, breath 
Dm                          Bb    
I am slain by a fair cruel maid



Dave Matthews performed this song on piano as a part of a video interview series 
in 2013 for SpiTune Video. I'm sure the full keyboard part could be more 
completely transcribed, but the simplicity of the song sounds great like this.
