images-1images-2Donovan Leitch, AKA Donovan, wrote some wonderful songs.

Catch the Wind is one of my favorites. Maybank and Bumba were playing it the other day, so here it is for your listening pleasure. Donovan Leitch, born in Glasgow in 1946, remains a vital folksinger of high integrity. I believe the clarity and power of his early work was clouded by his hippy/flower-child period which kinda lost me and much of his audience for while, but Donovan Leitch eventually returned to his roots in folk music and continues to play and sing at a high level.

In the chilly hours and minutes of uncertainty I want to be in the warm hold of your loving mind
To feel you all around me And to take your hand along the sand Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
When sundown pales the sky I wanna hide a while behind your smile And everywhere I’d look your eyes I’d find
For me to love you now Would be the sweetest thing, it would make me sing Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Dee dee da da la da da da da da Ya da da, da da, da da
When rain has hung the leaves with tears I want you near to kill my fears To help me to leave all my blues behind
For standing in your heart Is where I wanna be and I long to be Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind
