1. - To- get-her they would trav-el on a boat  with  bil-lowed  sail,-
2. - A   drag-on  lives for-ev-er  but   not   so    lit - tle  boys,-

2. Puff that might-y   drag-on,         he   ceased his  fear-less roar. Oh!
3. Puff that might-y   drag-on,    sad - ly  slipped  in-to his    cave. Oh!

I'm at an age (38) when I find myself feeling very emotional about lots of things ( a bit like the film Analyse This/That) and I find this song very emotional. I know there is a lot of debate about whether it's about drugs or growing up, I prefer to think of it as a growing up song and the loss of childhood innocence. A truly beautiful song....RIP Mary
