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...

  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)


(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)
