Catch the Wind is one of Donovan Leitch’s finest songs. Maybank and Bumba gave it a go the other day. But Donovan’s rendition is about as perfect and neat a recording as you’ll find. Check out Donovan’s recording of Catch the Wind. (Sorry, Bumbastories doesn’t provide links, but you can google it easily enough)
This is just to introduce you to Donovan and perhaps give you something pleasant to listen to as you start or end your day, as the case may. I think Donovan has been overlooked and underrated. His songwriting and performing are sterling. Hat’s off to Donovan!

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 want to 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 ‘twould make me sing
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Di di di di, di di di di
Di di di di, di di di di
Di di di

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 standin’ in your heart
Is where I want to be and 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
