Donovan Does Duluth

Our latest April storm was more a heroic and superior gale than a blizzard. When people flocked to the lake shore to experience the howling breeze and explosive waves, they were trying to catch the wind, like '60s folksinger Donovan crooned so long ago. Listening to the song again in a new YouTube movie makes me puzzle over the lyrics once more. Does anybody know what Donovan is singing right before the line "we'll try and catch the wind." ??


Is your Google broken? Catch the Wind lyrics

"Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind."

I sang this song obsessively in high school.

sounds like

Love without mirrors
Try and catch the wind
