Puff The Magic Dragon

Peter, Paul & Mary

 CEmFC
 Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
 FCAmD7G7
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah-lee,
 CEmFC
 Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff
 FCAmD7G7C
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff.
 G7
 Oh!
 CEmFC
 Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
 FCAmD7G7
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah-lee,
 CEmFC
 Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
 FCAmD7G7C
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah-lee,
 CEmFC
To-gether they would travel on a boat with billowed sail,
 FCAmD7G7
 Jackie kept a look-out perched on Puff's gi-gantic tail,
 CEmFC
 Noble kings and princes would bow when-e'er they came,
 FCAmD7G7C
And Pirate ships would low'r their flag when Puff roared out his name.
 G7
 Oh!
. . . .
Repeat Chorus
. . . .
 CEmFC
dragon lives fo-rever but not so little boys,
 FCAmD7G7
 Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys,
 CEmFC
 One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
 FCAmD7G7C
And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fear-less roar.
 G7
 Oh!
. . . .
Repeat Chorus
. . . .
 CEmFC
His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain,
 FCAmD7G7
 Puff no longer went to play a-long the cherry lane,  
 CEmFC
With-out his lifelong friend, Puff could not be brave
 FCAmD7G7C
So Puff that mighty dragon, sadly slipped in-to his cave.
 G7
 Oh!
 CEmFC
 Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
 FCAmD7G7
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah-lee,
 CEmFC
 Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
 FCAmD7G7CFCG7C
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Ho-nah-Lee.

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
