Can precede a bare infinitive in imperatives and in predicates preceded by a modal:

  • Come (look / listen / see) for yourself.
  • She can come (look / listen / see) for herself.

Is frequently used with the coordinating conjunction: come and look, come and get it, come and pick it up etc.

Can precede a present participle (like go, but the point of reference is different)

  • I want to come bowling with you, but I can't, I have to feed my sick fish.
  • We came fishing with you last weekend, this weekend you should come running with us!
