Puff The Magic Dragon


by Peter, Paul, & Mary (Yarrow/Lipton)
(Capo 3rd Fret)

 V:	Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff. Oh!

 C:	Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea 
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

Together they would travel on a boat with  billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff's gigantic tail
Noble Kings  and Princes would bow whenever they came
Pirate ships would lower their flag when Puff roared out his name, Oh!

  C:	(Chorus)

A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other  toys
One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar. Oh!

  C:	(Chorus)
 
His head was bent in sorrow green scales fell like rain
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane,
Without his life-long friend, Puff could not be brave
So Puff that mighty dragon, sadly slipped into his cave. Oh!

 C:	(Chorus)
