  Am       Fmaj7       E5            Am
I once happened ‘cross fair brothers three
    Am                 C             D        Dm    
Who thought they could use all their magic to thwart me
    Am       Fmaj7        Em7               Dsus D
But I, being Death, being sly blocked their path
          C              G/B         Em/B        Dsus/A D/A       
And said “brave, cunning brothers oh what do you ask
       C/G         G              Em           A
I will give each a prize and then let brothers pass”

    Am            Fmaj7                  Em7       Am
The first brother begged “please, Death, make me a tool
  Am             C         D            Dm
A wand that will win every fight, every duel”
     Am             Fmaj7     Em7   Dsus D
So I broke a branch off of an elder tree
      C           G           Em             Dsus D
And I fashioned a wand for he thought he was worthy
    C          G           Em        A
And gave elder wand to the eldest of three

A   C          D        A
Go, brother, I bid thee goodnight
  A              C            G           Dsus Dm
I promise you’ll win all your battles and fights
         A            C          D           Fmaj7
But your wand will be stolen and you will be slain
             Dm7    Em    A5 Fmaj7 Em Am
Then you and I will meet again

    Am           Fmaj7          Em7     Am
The next brother cried “give me magic instead,
    Am       C            D             Dm
The power to bring others back from the dead”
     Am          Fmaj7          Em7  Dsus D
So I picked up a stone from the riverside
      C            G          Em      Dsus D
And I told him the pebble had magic inside
         C              G            Em       A
It would bring back the dead and his departed bride

A   C         D            A
Go, brother I bid thee goodnight
       A             C               G           Dsus Dm
You’ll see your love soon but things will not be right
       A              C         D            Fmaj7
You’ll drive yourself crazy cuz she won’t be whole
         Dm7    Em         A5 Fmaj7 Em7 Am
And then I will claim your soul

    Am               Fmaj7          Em7              A5
The youngest brother said “Death, I don’t trust your ways,
       Am        C             D         Dm
Please leave me alone ‘til the end of my days”
    Am           Fmaj7                 Em7           Dsus D
And though I was reluctant, he was the wisest of the three
     C           G          Em      D
So I gave him my cloak of invisibility
      C             G          A
And I let the young brother go free

A   C         D            A
Go, brother I bid thee goodnight
   A             C            G             D
Go take your new cloak and go live out your life
   A         C           D            Fmaj7
Be happy and healthy and when you are ready
        Dm7           Em             A5 Fmaj7 Em Am
You can take off your cloak and join me

    Am          Fmaj7        Em7      Am
And that is the story of the Peverell brothers
     Am              C           D          Dm
They each made their choice, one wiser than others
     Am             Fmaj7       Em7          Dsus D
They stripped me of wand and of cloak and of stone
      Am           Fmaj7    Em7          Dsus D
And I bade young Ignotus be selfless and roam
    F          C              G             Dsus D Dm
And many years passed ‘til he called me his home
      F              E5         A5
But I took the other two for my own
