2. Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail,

    Noble kings and princes would bow whenever they came,

    Without his life-long friend, Puff could not be brave,

           C                         G        Em     A7       D           G

    so Puff, that mighty dragan, sadly  slipped into his cave.  + CHORUS
