18 And Life  Skid Row



















[C#m]Ricky was a young boy, he had a heart of stone
Lived 9 to 5 a[A]nd worked his fin[B]gers to the bone
[C#m]Just barely out of school came from the edge of town

Fought like a switchblade
So [A]no one co[B]uld take him down, [A]He had no money, ooh
[F#m]No good at home
[A]He walked the streets a soldier, an[B]d he fought the world

alone

And now its...

REFRAIN:

[C#m]Eighteen and[A] life you got it
[E]EIghteen and[B] life you know
[C#m]Your crime is[A] time and it's
[B]Eighteen and life to go
[C#m]Eighteen and[A] life you got it
[E]Eighteen and[B] life you know
[C#m]Your crime is[A] time and it's
[B]Eighteen and l[C#m]ife to go

(REPEAT INTRO)

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

best friend

And now it's...

(REPEAT REFRAIN)

BRIDGE:

[A]Accidents will happen[F#m], they all heard Ricky say
[A]He fired his six-shot to the w[B]ind, that child blew a child away

AD LINE: (DO REFRAIN CHORD PATTERN)

(REPEAT REFRAIN 2X)
