Obscure 60's/70's Song
I am seeking the name and artist of a song that probably was released in the late 60's or early 70's.

I don't remember if it was ever that popular, and I don't have a lot of information to provide, so I'm hoping that someone on the forum can recognize it from what little I do remember.

The artist is male, and the song is a slow ballad.

What little I remember about the lyrics is from the chorus which, I believe goes something like this:

Who knows ... the wind.
Who knows ... my love.

There is yet one more piece of obscure information I can provide.

My roommate at the time (whom I have completely lost touch with) purchased a compilation LP specifically for this song.

And, while I don't remember the name of the LP, I do vaguely remember being surprised that Michael Nesmith (who I only knew from Monkees fame) was another artist featured on the same LP.

I have attempted to find the song by researching the LP's Michael Nesmith was featured on, with no success.

I suspect the only chance I am going to have with this is if someone on the forum is familiar with the LP.

Thanks in advance for any further information anyone can provide!

I think this what you're looking for:

Jerry Jeff Walker Wind lyrics

You say that once knew for sure
But now you're walkin' into shore to wonder*
The more you learn the less you know
The more you move the more you go to nowhere*
You play your role of comedy
Profess you well the tragedy that you're living
'Cause love was sure or so you say
Like the wind that blew away
and as she left she seemed to say the wind is
Love it's the wind
The wind is my love
Who knows the wind?
Where blows my love?
The wind is my love.
The city sun blinks in your eyes
You shade your face you realize the lonely crowd
You stagger on up to your room
To sleep by day and plot by moon, your conscience flies
You pack your dreams, you'll move away
Decide to eat and live by day and leave the night
And all at once there comes a smile
The ice warm air moves by and as you leave you seem to say
Love is the wind
The wind is my love
Who knows the wind?
Where blows my love
The wind is my love.

Jerry Jeff Walker Wind lyrics

This is phenomenal!

I found the song on a LP by Circus Maximus.

I would not have imagined that someone could have recognized this song by my obscure description, but I thought it was worth a try.

I truly appreciate the response to my inquiry.
