The Highway That I'm On [Final Edit] - Dr Klutz here! I had 2 videos and I deleted the wrong one. The one with approaching 1000 views on youtube and thousands elsewhere. Indeed, Highway 87 runs through my life from junior high to Spring 2008. When the winds and storm tides of Hurricane Ike roared across Bolivar Peninsula in September 2008 it devastated the lives of the Coastal Texans living there. I graduated from South Park High School. The real one in Beaumont, Texas. Not the fictional one in Colorado. A lot of Beaumonters retired to the Crystal Beach/Bolivar/ Gilchrist area. God bless you my friends

Courage [Master Edit] - In April 2010 the survivors of the Parkland, Florida mass shooting showed the world what courage is by spearheading a movement for gun control against NRA resistance and in the face of selfish opposition from the good old boy network. My grandson, Trevor Benson, spoke before thousands at the March For Our Lives demonstration in Honolulu. The courage shown by the youth of America inspired me to write this song.

I Still Love You - In the 1980s at "Thirsty's" in Beaumont, TX I experienced one of the most moving reactions to any of my songs in a given night. A gentleman in a cowboy had wiped his eyes as I played "I Still Love You" then slowly got up and I thought was moving toward the door to leave but he came and laid a $20 bill over my music stand and asked me to play the song again. I did immediately then he got up and tipped his hat and left. Today I played the song all the way through 1st try. Been having trouble with varying degrees of feeling in my right hand. Makes it kind of hard to play. Dedicated to all the broken hearts out there.

So High, Alone, And 18 [Final Edit] - A young lady's description of a party she had been to. I do not smoke. President Obama did. See picture in video. My fave presidents are Clinton, Jimmy Carter and Barack O'Bama. I personally don't smoke pot. Were it legal I would take something with THC in it by tablet or capsule. As I said. I don't smoke. To me, It's like walking up to a burning building and opening a window and getting a lung full. I believe pot should be legal on the basis of they make whiskey, wine, and beer legal which can trigger fatal auto accidents. Why not weed. Huh Willie, Snoop? Not many wrecks, if any, caused from someone rushing to the drive in grocery with the munchies.

The Storm - Written just before the 100th anniversary of the 1900 Storm which is the worst disaster in US history. Between 6 and 12 thousand lives were taken by the wind and sea. After finishing the song I went to Walmart on Seawall Boulevard where I saw a small boy in wet clothes running down the aisle. I followed and the wet foot steps stopped just around the corner. I later learned that the Walmart was built where the orphanage destroyed by the storm once stood. The Sisters of Mercy tied themselves to the children in an effort to keep them together.

God Looks Like Willie Nelson - I wrote this sitting at the coffee table watching a Willie impersonator leaning against a fence in a CMT video in 2002. It is my ode to the King of Texas songwriters. The man whose move back to Texas from Nashville led the Austin emergence as an alternative to the formula songs coming out of Tennessee at the time. Such a remarkable. creative genius. He wrote Patsy Cline hits, Roy Orbison, etc while still in Nashville. He is very much still alive and creating. He counts presidents, young country stars, and Snoop Dog as friends. A truly amazing man. I've learned a lot from Willie. Visualizing Willie at the Pearlie gates with a peace pipe of cannabis is isn't hard to picture. I am in no hurry to see him start his NEW job. : ) Reference video track: ALL TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS REMAIN THE PROPERTY OF THEIR OWNERS.

Gulf Of Mexico - One summer afternoon in July 2002 I went to sit on the steps of the Seawall and write. I came up with a guitar riff and tried to match it with the tempo of the waves. It was like I was on auto pilot. A verse and chorus poured out of me. My friend Patsy and her kids saw me sitting at the top of the steps and stopped and asked me to play them a song. I played them what I had written so far and they gave me thumps up. I played the finished song that night and got requests to play it 3 more times. Gulf Of Mexico has been my most downloaded and played song for the last 17 years. : ) Reference video track: ALL TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS REMAIN THE PROPERTY OF THEIR OWNERS.

Shaman's Song [Master Edit] - A song about a Native American on Friday night who accidentally wanders out on a roof in downtown Galveston. A crowd gathers thinking he was going to jump. The long arm of the law reaches out and takes him away. Based on a true story. I was taught in school about Columbus discovering America and that was a lie. There was a native population that lived in harmony with Nature. Reference video track: ALL TRADEMARKS AND COPYRIGHTS REMAIN THE PROPERTY OF THEIR OWNERS.

Faith Hope [No Charity] - Written in 1990 shortly before I lost feeling in my left arm for 8 years. I had fun with the my Daion dual pickup. Sounded like a Les Paul and looked like a Gibson double cut-away. My favorite electric I've owned. Burgundy lady. I should have kept the vocal clean with just a touch of reverb. Faith In Hope ( No Charity ) J. D. Richards Hope left Texas – Had a damn good reason An honest woman couldn’t earn no wage She wasn’t one for the unemployment So she left Texas for F L A. (She) Rode a Greyhound into Pensacola That bus took her down the coast highway Looked for a way to earn a dollar But she woudn’t ride a desk all day Bridge: She ended up workin’ as a dancer and feelin’ so out of place The men she met she couldn’t take home to momma They wanted more that she was givin’ so she made her escape She was livin’ a hard luck story Her luck was runnin’ at an all time low When I first saw her she was readin’ her bible In an all night diner I found Hope She came home with me as the sun was risin’ She made it clear it was just to sleep I offered money to tide her over But Hope took no charity Bridge: She ended up workin’ as a dancer and feelin’ so out of place The men she met she couldn’t take home to momma They wanted more that she was givin’ so she made her escape Hope left Texas – Had a damn good reason An honest woman couldn’t earn no wage Last time I saw her she looked like an angel I have faith that hope will find her way Copyright JD Richards 2000

On The Island [Master] - A love song inspired by Galveston Island. Thought I'd never leave and swore I'd never get married again. Here I am in exile up north ( Metro Dallas) and married. I have never experienced the warmth and friendship every way I turned like I did for that 10 year period of my life. I got offered singing gigs with bands and indie recording deals but performed solo with just my guitars by choice. Having friends come back year after year and watching their kids grow up before my eyes was a beautiful experience. I had steady year round gigs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and booked myself the other days, or should I say nights, as much as I wanted? The biggest plus was my daughter could come and see daddy and my sons were my roadies for two separate months and they got to see what daddy could do. After 8 years with little feeling in my left arm, they were surprised, I think. : )

Have A Little Faith [Cover] - My version of the Joe Cocker hit. I use to do "Feeling Alright", You Can leave Your Hat on", and "You Are So Beautiful" every chance I got at island karaoke shows hosted by Dennis compton and Sandy Wells. I recorde "Blues Man" and "I'll Go On Loving You" with bluesy hooks. Just never had the financing to go in the studio with them, especially when I have so many of own. This video has a surprise twist to the love triangle theme.
