[Verse]
Am
Ricky was a young boy, he had a heart of stone
             F              G
Lived 9 to 5 and worked his fingers to the bone
Am
Just barely out of school came from the edge of town

Fought like a switchblade
      F                  G    F
So no one could take him down, He had no money, ooh
Dm
No good at home
F                                       G
He walked the streets a soldier, and he fought the world alone

And now its...

Eighteen and life you got it

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

And now it's...


[Chorus]

Eighteen and life you got it

[Bridge]
C                      G
Accidents will happen, they all heard Ricky say
F                                  G
He fired his six-shot to the wind, that child blew a child away
