Moving is the second album by the American folk music trio Peter, Paul & Mary, released in January 1963. The lead-off single, "Big Boat," failed to chart substantially, only staying on the Top 100 for two weeks, reaching #93.

The second single, "Settle Down (Goin' Down That Highway)," did slightly better, peaking at #56 on the Pop charts during a 6-week run; however, it did become an easy listening hit at #14.

The third single, "Puff, the Magic Dragon," was a huge hit and a defining song for the trio, reaching #2 on the Hot 100, #1 on the Easy Listening, and #10 on the R&B Charts.
