Puff The Magic Dragon  ĽUkulele Tab by Peter, Paul, & Mary

MovingI don’t know of too many traditional tunes that fall into the category of “hit song” within memory. But it seems that Peter, Paul, and Mary’s ditty, Puff The Magic Dragon has become one of those familiar tunes that could be right out of Mother Goose.

A student requested this song and it was a great candidate for a simple solo arrangement so I made up a tab in C. I also included the bare-bones melody version for those that want something more straight-forward or would like to take a stab at an arrangement themselves.

I’m an ‘ukulele artist from Honoka’a, Hawai’i, where I run this site from a little plantation house in the jungle. I’ve taught workshops internationally, made Herb Ohta Jr. laugh until he cried, and once borrowed a uke to jam with HAPA onstage in my boardshorts. More about me
