Puff the Magic Dragon

C                       Em       F                 C

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea

        F                       C            Am
And frolicked in the autumn mist

       D7                         G7
in a land called Hana Lee

C                  Em    F                         C
Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff

        F                                    C          Am
And brought him strings and sealing wax

       D7    G7      C
and other fancy stuff



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 when’er they came,
Pirate ships would low’r their flag
when Puff roared out his name.


A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings made way for other toys
One gray night it happened,
Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon,
he ceased his fearless roar.
His head was bent in sorrow--
green scales fell like rain,
Puff no longer went to play
along the cherry lane
Without his lifelong friend
Puff could not be brave
So Puff that mighty dragon,
sadly slipped into his cave.
