And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honalee.

Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff

           C                               G (½)     Em (½)   Am (½)   D (½)   G (½)    D (½)
And brought him strings and sealing wax and  other    fancy   stuff,    oh

Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea

And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honalee.

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea

           C                  G (½)     Em (½)   Am (½)        D (½)     G (½)    D (½)
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Hona  -  lee.

Together they would travel on boat with billowed sail

 C                    G (½)   Em (½)         Am               D
Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff's gigantic tail

  G                        Bm              C                          G
Noble kings and princes would bow whene'er they came

  C                        G (½)            Em (½)     Am (½)        D (½)    G (½)   D (½)
Pirate ships would lower their flags when Puff roared out his name,   oh

 

Chorus

 

       G                 Bm           C              G

A dragon lives forever, but not so little boys

   C                         G (½)    Em (½)        Am              D
Painted wings and giants's rings make way for other toys.

G                          Bm                     C                      G
One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more

         C                        G (½)   Em (½)   Am (½)       D (½)    G (½)    D (½)
And Puff that mighty dragon, he         ceased his fearless roar.

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain

  C                    G (½)    Em (½)  Am                  D
Puff no longer went to play     along the cherry lane.

        G                       Bm   C                       G
Without his lifelong friend, Puff could not be brave

       C                          G (½)  Em (½)   Am (½)     D (½)    G (½)    D (½)
So, Puff that mighty dragon  sadly     slipped   into his  cave,    oh
