I’ve already been on X-Factor 2010 and The Best Rock/Americana Album 'Smith's Story' now I want to play more than just clubs and Bahai centers,” explained Richard Smith today. “I’ve been writing since I was a teenager and have been fortunate enough to work with the 'giant' musician Charli Holoubek and his band—they recorded my songs!”



Fans can hear examples of his music on CDBaby, where the songs Party, Story, I Got The Power, Blue Moon, What a Wonderful World and Persian Love I Need Love which were already released.

Story

A F#m D E7 A F#m D E A F#m A E7
A F#m
I REMEMBER WALKING DOWN THE STREET D E7
IN THE SWELTERING SUMMER HEAT
A F#m
THERE WAS ME AND HARRY AND THE GUYS
D E7
JIM AND FLINT
D E7
WE DECIDED TO ROB A BANK
A F#m
OUR MONEY WAS REAL LOW
D E7
SO JIM WENT IN AND HELD THEM UP
D E7 A F#m A E7
AND I TOOK THE CASH

A F#m
BUT SOMEONE HAD CALLED THE COPS
D E7
HE CAUGHT US GOOD AND PROPER
A F#m
HE SAID “SON GIVE UP NOW”
D E7 c
BUT JIM REACHED FOR HIS GUN

A F#m
JIM FELL DOWN AND BROKE HIS CROWN
D E7
FLINT FELL SOON AFTER
A F#m
THERE WAS SUCH A TERRIBLE CURFUFFLE
D E7
BLOOD IN EVERY CORNER
A F#m D E7
JIM HE DIED I CRIED

A F#m
THE COPS CALLED IN THE PARENTS
D E7
TO IDENTIFY THEIR SONS
A F#m
BUT THEY SAID “IT COULDN’T BE HIM,
D E7
HE’S SUCH A GOOD SON!”

D E7
JIM WHY DID YOU DO IT?
A F#m
I GAVE YOU EVERYTHING
D E7
FLINT WHY DID YOU BLOW IT?
D E7
I GAVE YOU ALL MY LOVE
A F#m A E7
MAYBE ANOTHER TIME MAYBE ANOTHER PLACE

A F#m
THINGS MIGHT HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT THEN
D E7
IF WE HAD TAUGHT YOU RIGHT
A F#m
IN THE FIRST PLACE
D E7 c
INSTEAD OF HURTING YOU

A F#m
BABY PLEASE DON’T DIE

MOMMA PLEASE DON’T CRY

DADDY PLEASE DON’T CRY
