18 And Life

Skid Row
Language: English



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

18 and life you got it
18 and life to you know
Your crime is time and it's
18 and life to go

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

18 and life you got it
18 and life you know
Your crime is time and it's
18 and life to go

"Accidents will happen", the all heard Ricky say
He fired his six shot in the wind and that blew a child away

And now it's
18 and life you got it
18 and life you know
Your crime is time and it's
18 and life to go
