                             18 and Life - Skid Row
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


C#m         B        C#m        B 
    Ricky was a young boy, he had a heart of stone. 
    C#m        B                A              B 
    Lived 9 to 5 and worked his fingers to the bone. 
    C#m         B            C#m             B 
    Just barely out of school, came from the edge of town. 
    C#m           B              A                    B 
    Fought like a switchblade so no one could take him down. 
    A                   F# 
    He had no money, ooh, no good at home. 
       G#                            F#  G# A                B 
    He walked the streets a soldier and he fought the world alone. 
    And now it's..... 


    C#m          A                 E            B 
    Eighteen and life you got it.  Eighteen and life you know. 
    C#m           A              E            B 
    Your crime is time and it's, eighteen and life to go. 
    C#m          A                 E            B 
    Eighteen and life you got it.  Eighteen and life you know. 
    C#m           A              E            B       C#m 
    Your crime is time and it's, eighteen and life to go. 


    C#m     B               C#m                B 
    Tequila in his heartbeat, his veins burned gasoline. 
    C#m         B             A             B 
    It kept his motor running, but it never kept him clean. 
    C#m         B              C#m           B 
    They say he loved adventure, Ricky's the wild one. 
    C#m        B             A                B 
    He married trouble had a courtship with a gun. 
    A                            F# 
    Bang, bang shoot 'em up, the party never ends. 
        G#                    F#   G#  A                  B 
    You can't think of dying when that bottle's your best friend. 
    And now it's.... 
    

C#m          A                 E            B 
    Eighteen and life you got it.  Eighteen and life you know. 
    C#m           A              E            B 
    Your crime is time and it's, eighteen and life to go. 
    C#m          A                 E            B 
    Eighteen and life you got it.  Eighteen and life you know. 
    C#m           A              E            B       C#m 
    Your crime is time and it's, eighteen and life to go.


    E                             B 
    "Accidents will happen", they all heard Ricky say. 
      A                                     B                  C#m 
    He fired his six-shot to the wind, that child blew a child away. 
    

C#m          A                 E            B 
    Eighteen and life you got it.  Eighteen and life you know. 
    C#m           A              E            B 
    Your crime is time and it's, eighteen and life to go. 
    C#m          A                 E            B 
    Eighteen and life you got it.  Eighteen and life you know. 
    C#m           A              E            B       C#m 
    Your crime is time and it's, eighteen and life to go.

Chords are generally accurate, but using "C#m" and "Dbm" (2 names for the same chord) in the same song is annoying.

I don't see where he calls it a Dbm anywhere... Unless he corrected it after reading your comment...

I don't see the chord Dbm anywhere in the song. Chords sound good to me, and I am playing power Bar Chords and a combination of the regular chords just whenever I feel like it and I think it sounds great. I played my Les Paul guitar while I had the video turned up on You Tube.
Thanks t the originator of this chord setup with the lyric as I spend a lot of time copying and pasting the songs into Word and then I have to setup the spacing and Page#1,etc., Kudos
