18 And Life
Bolan/Snake
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 no-one could take him down, no

(chorus)
Eighteen and life, you got it

Your crime is time and it's
Eighteen and life to go

It kept his motor running,
But it never kept him clean

You can't think of dying when the bottles your best friend and now it's...

(repeat chorus)

"Accidents will happen", they all heard Ricky say
He fired his six-shot to the wind,
That child blew a child away

(guitar solo)

(repeat chorus)
