Song Meaning
Verse 1
Ricky was a young boy
He had a heart of stone
Lived nine to five and worked his fingers to the bone
Verse 2
Just barely out of school
Came from the edge of town
Fought like a switchblade so no one could take him down
Verse 3
He had no money, oh
No good at home
He walked the streets a soldier
And he fought the world alone and now it's
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
Tequila in his heartbeat
His veins burned gasoline
It kept his motor runnin'
But he never kept it clean
Verse 6
They say he loved adventure
Ricky's the wild one
He married trouble
Had a courtship with a gun
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
Accidents will happen
They all heard Ricky say
He fired his six-shot to the wind
That child blew a child away
Verse 10
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, yeah
Oh oh
