    Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea

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

               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

    G                      Bm    C                G

    Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea

             C                    G (½)      Em (½)  Am                   D
    And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honalee.
    G                      Bm     C                 G

    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.

     

          G                         Bm         C                         G

    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)

    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.

     

            G                      Bm        C                            G

    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
