Intro : C#m(4x)-A-B
C#m Ricky was a young boy, he had a heart of stone A B Lived 9 to 5 and worked his fingers to the bone C#m Just barely out of school came from the edge of town

And now its...

A B A B Ricky's the wild one, He married trouble had a courtship with a gun A F#m Bang, bang shoot em' up, The party never ends A B You can't think of dying when that bottle is your best friend And now it's... Repeat Chorus Bridge: A F#m Accidents will happen, they all heard Ricky say A B He fired his six-shot to the wind, that child blew a child away Repeat Chorus 2x
