Puff the Magic Dragon – Peter, Paul and Mary cover of Thirtysilver

This song really means a lot, as silly as that may sound. It is, of course, about the role of innocence, although not necessarily death and abandonment is an issue that I feel that I understand only too well. I was singing this suffocating, and you could tell. I went because I thought the real emotions could make this cover of Puff the Magic Dragon the more powerful. Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary, was born in the same city as I was. Finally: No, this song is not aboutDrugs. Written by Peter Yarrow and Leonard Lipton and popularized by folk group Peter, Paul and Mary, this song on the album PP & M found "Moving".
