Puff The Magic Dragon

** "Songbook" Songbook.PuffTheMagicDragon -> Songbook.FullName ontrail

By: Leonard Lipton and Peter Yarrow, 1963[1]


Refrain
G Bm C G
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
C G Em A7 D7
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
 
G Bm C G
Little Jackie paper loved that rascal Puff
C G Em A7 D7
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff
 
G Bm C G
Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
C G Em A7 D7
And Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff’s gigantic tail
G Bm C G
Noble kings and princes would bow when ere they came
C G Em A7 D7
Pirate ships would lower their flags when Puff roared out his name
 
Refrain
 
G Bm C G
A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
C G Em A7 D7
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys
G Bm C G
One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
C G Em A7 D7
And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar
 
G Bm C G
His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain
C G Em A7 D7
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane
G Bm C G
Without his life-long friend, Puff could not be brave
C G Em A7 D7
So Puff that mighty dragon, sadly slipped into his cave
 
Refrain
 
C D7 G
In a land called Honah Lee
