Biography

22 years involved in music industry, Started first band with brother at age 17 (garage band) moved on to better things, bigger shows eventually opening for The Tom.T Hall.I Felt things were looking promising my band with an offer to continue as an opening act for this Star. But I guess it wasn't meant to be,The band wasn't comitted enough to give up there day jobs. So that's what started my solo act.This also gave me the drive to write and record my first c.d. Titled (SOMEONE)which has gotten me an entirely new group of followers, at least at local level.

Lyrics

" THE CALL OF DUTY "

Written By: L. RICHARD SMITH

GOT THE CALL EARLY THIS MORNING
HE'LL BE LEAVING REAL SOON
ACROSS THE LAND AND THE WATER
DESTINATION IS CLEAR
NO MATTER THE MISSION
HE STANDS READY AND TALL
TO FIGHT FOR HIS COUNTRY
AND ANSWER THE CALL

HE TELLS HIS FAMILY THE NEWS
IT DOES'NT GO SO WELL
BUT THEY KNOW HIS HEART IS IN IT
EVEN THOUGH HE'LL SEE MONTHS OF HELL
AS HE WIPES THE TEARS FROM HIS WIFES EYES
HE LOOKS AT THEM AND SAYS
DADDY'S GONNA HAVE TO ANSWER THE CALL
THIS IS THE CALL OF DUTY
LIKE SO MANY BEFORE ME
LIKE GRANDPA AND UNCLE JOE
FIGHTING OVER SEAS
YEAH IT RUNS IN OUR BLOODLINES
OR YOU CAN CALL IT DESTINY
BUT IT'S THE PRICE FOR THE LAND OF THE FREE
* LEAD BREAK *
YEAH THIS IS THE CALL OF DUTY
LIKE SO MANY BEFORE ME
LIKE GRANDPA AND UNCLE BILL
FIGHTING OVER THE SEAS
YEAH IT RUNS IN OUR BLOODLINES
OR YOU CAN CALL IT DESTINY
BUT IT'S THE PRICE FOR THE LAND OF THE FREE
YEAH THERES A PRICE FOR THE LAND OF FREE
YEAH THERE'S A PRICE IF THE WORLDS GONNA BE FREE

GET A SHOT OF YOU

Written By: L. RICHARD SMITH

WELL I COME HERE EVERY MORNING

ANOTHER SHOT OF YOU

LEAD BREAK

OH WHAT I WOULDN'T GIVE
TO HAVE ONE MORE CHANCE WITH YOU
