«You Can Do Magic» is a song by singer-songwriter Russ Ballard which was recorded as a 1982 single by folk rock duo America from their albumView from the Ground.

The song was one of two Ballard compositions on View from the Ground, the other being «Jody». Ballard wrote both songs specifically for America at the behest of Rupert PerryA&R vice president for Capitol Records. Ballard also produced the tracks marking a return to record production after a four year hiatus; although Ballard had had earlier hits as a songwriter, «You Can Do Magic» was his first major hit credit as a producer.
