[Verse 1]
(play with intro) 

C#m         B          C#m        B          
Ricky was a young boy, he had a heart of stone.

C#m             B                     Asus2              Bsus4
Lived nine to five and he worked his fingers to the bone.

C#m                        B                 
Just barely out of school, came from the edge of town.

C#m              B               A5                     B5  G#
Fought like a switch-blade so no-one could take him down,   no!

A5               G#  F#5              E  F#5 
He had no money, no, no good at home.

G#5                          F#  G# A5                 B5 
Walked the streets a soldier and he fought the world alone and now it's...


[Chorus]

   C#5             A#5              E5              B5
E|--------------------------------|--------0-----------------------|
B|--------------------------------|----0-------0-----------4-------|
G|--------6---------------2-------|--------------------------------|
D|----6-------6-------2-------2---|--------------------4-----------|
A|4---------------0---------------|----------------2-----------3---|
E|--------------------------------|0-------------------------------|
 
  Eighteen and   life, you got it. Eighteen and    life, you know
  
  Your crime is  time,    and it's eighteen and    life  to go !
  
  Eighteen and   life, you got it. Eighteen and    life, you know
  
  Your crime is  time,    and it's eighteen and    life  to go !
  
  (finish with intro...)


[Verse 2]
(play with intro)  

C#m              B        C#m       B
Tequila in his heartbeat, his veins burned gasoline.

C#m          B             Asus2        Bsus4         
It kept his motor running, but it never kept him clean.

C#m           B               C#m          B
They said he loved adventure. Ricky's the wild one.

C#m         B              Asus2     Bsus4   
He married trouble, had a courtship with a gun.

A5                      F#5                   
Bang, bang shoot'em up. The party never ends.

G#5                      F#   G#  A5                 B5 
You can't think of dying when the bottle's your best friend.


(Repeat chorus)


[Bridge]

(palm mute a C#5 chord during two measures and ...)

 E5                            B5
"Accidents will happen," they all heard Ricky say.

    A5                                  B5
He fired his six shot to the wind, that child blew a child away.

(Repeat chorus)
