Verse 1 (play with intro)
=======

[C#m]Ricky was a [B]young boy, [C#m]he had a he[B]art of stone.

[C#m]Lived nine to fi[B]ve and he worked his f[Asus2]ingers to the bone.[Bsus4]
[C#m]Just barely out of school, [B]came from the edge of town.
[C#m]Fought like a swi[B]tch-blade so no-[A5]one could take him down[B5],   [G#]no!
[A5]He had no money, [G#]no, [F#5]no good at home. [E]   [F#5]

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]Tequila in his he[B]artbeat, [C#m]his veins [B]burned gasoline.

[C#m]It kept his m[B]otor running, [Asus2]but it never [Bsus4]kept him clean.
[C#m]They said he l[B]oved adventure. [C#m]Ricky's the w[B]ild one.
[C#m]He married t[B]rouble, had a c[Asus2]ourtship w[Bsus4]ith a gun.
[A5]Bang, bang shoot'em up. [F#5]The party never ends.
[G#5]You can't think of dying [F#]when [G#]the [A5]bottle's your best [B5]friend.
(Repeat chorus)


Bridge
======

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

"[E5]Accidents will happen," they a[B5]ll heard Ricky say.

He f[A5]ired his six shot to the wind, that [B5]child blew a child away.
(Repeat chorus)
