Whatever happened to Bob Lind?



Bob Lind wrote "Elusive Butterfly", one of the greatest songs of the 1960's.

And then he did not record any other hits!

I understand from his website that his songs were recorded by other artists. Frankly, I am not familiar with them.

Whatever happened to Bob Lind? Is he the all time "one hit wonder"?

Elusive Butterfly
(written by Bob Lind)

You might wake up some mornin'
To the sound of something moving
past your window in the wind
And if you're quick enough to rise
You'll catch a fleeting glimpse of someone's fading shadow
Out on the new horizon
You may see the floating motion of a distant pair of wings
And if the sleep has left your ears
You might hear footsteps running through an open meadow
Don't be concerned,
it will not harm you
It's only me pursuing somethin' I'm not sure of
Across my dreams with nets of wonder
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love
You might have heard my footsteps
Echo softly in the distance through the canyons of your mind
I might have even called your name
As I ran searching after something to believe in
You might have seen me runnin'
Through the long-abandoned
ruins of the dreams you left behind
If you remember something there
That glided past you followed close by heavy breathin'
Don't be concerned, it will not harm you
It's only me pursuing somethin'
I'm not sure of
Across my dreams with nets of wonder
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

Across my dreams with nets of wonder
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love"


Pretty good song!
