CATCH THE WIND


Donovan


[C][C][F][G][C][F][C][G]


[C] In the chilly hours and [F] minutes of un-[C]-certainty, [F] I want to be

[C] In the warm hold [F] of your [G] loving [C] mind [G]

[C] To feel you all [F] around me,

And to [C] take your hand, [F] along the sand

[C] Ah, but I may as well [F] try and [G] catch the [C] wind. [F][C][G]


[F] Dee dee, dee di [G] dee, di di [Am] di dee, di di [D] di dee,

Di di [G] dee, dee, [G7] dee, dee.


[C] When sundown pales the [F] sky,

I want to [C] hide a while, [F] behind your smile

[C] And everywhere I [F] look your [G] eyes I'd [C] find; [G]

[C] For me to love you [F] now would be the [C] sweetest thing;

[F] T'would make me sing

[C] Ah, but I may as well [F] try and [G] catch the [C] wind. [F][C][G]


[F] Dee dee, dee di [G] dee, di di [Am] di dee, di di [D] di dee,

Di di [G] dee, dee, [G7] dee, dee.


[C] When rain has hung the [F] leaves with tears,

[C] I want you near, [F] to kill my fears;

[C] To help me to leave [F] all my [G] blues be-[C]-hind; [G]

[C] Standing in your [F] heart is where I [C] want to be; [F] And long to be


[C] Ah, but I may as well [F] try and [G] catch the [C] wind. [F][C][G]

[C] Ah, but I may as well [F] try and [G] catch the [C] wind. [F][C][G]

[C] Ah, but I may as well [F] try and [G] catch the [C] wind. [F][C][G][C]


This is how I play this song:
