Maybe you didn't know him 
But he prob'ly was your friend 
He was oddly down to earth 
And just as wild as the wind 
As the wind 
Rick was as wild as the wind 

He played the biggest concerts 
And the little gig 
He always sang his heart out 
If the crowd was small or big 
Small or big 
However small, ever big 

CHORUS 

"Hey Mister got a minute?" 
That's what he would say 
"Hey Mister got a minute?" 
Well, I do sir today 

Rick would take some cocaine 
Didn't need a straw 
He could just swoop down and sniff some 
Anytime he saw 
If he saw 
If there'd be some that he saw 

Rick was backstage loaded 
I was sorta shocked 
The man said, "Rick, it's show time" 
Rick walked out and rocked 
And he rocked 
Not one bad note and he rocked 

(REPEAT CHORUS) 

There's a certain kind of free heart 
That's never bought and sold 
There's a certain kind of wild child  
That never should grow old 
Getting old 
Who'd picture Rick getting old? 

(REPEAT CHORUS TWICE) 

Maybe you didn't know him 
But he prob'ly was your friend 
He was oddly down to earth 
And just as wild as the wind 
As the wind 
Rick was as wild as the wind
