18 and Life - Skid Row

I've seen plenty of chord tabs for this song and personally I think they're all wrong.
offense to the people that tabbed them out but they say in the chorus to go to F# instead
E. If you play it with the song it doesn't take long to realize that isn't right.  
this tab is 100% correct I believe.  If you have and questions/critiques feel free to

C#
Ricky was a young boy He had a heart of stone
                               A              B
Lived 9 to 5 and he worked his fingers to the bone
C#
Just barely out of school Came from the edge of town
                                A                   B
Fought like a switchblade so no one could bring him down
A               F#
He had no money oh no good at home
   Ab                   A              B
He walked the streets a soldier and he fought the world alone and now its

C#     A
18 and life you got it
E      B
18 and life you know
C#            A            E      B
Your crime is time and its 18 and life to go

Repeat intro
Verse 2
Tequila in his heart beat his veins burned gasoline
It kept his motor running but it never kept him clean
They said 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
Bridge

E                          B
Accidents will happen they all heard Ricky say
    A                                   B
He fired his six shoot to the wind that child blew a child away
