I often wonder why the world chose Chuck Norris to be this big-a-phenomenon. I’m not complaining though, he’s funny and he rocks (and is such a badass!), and by the way, he is now 70 years old.
Thanks in part to Conan, this show is now and will always be, a cult classic.
Another probable reason why he’s such a legend is because he’s the only one who has the balls to sing the theme tune to his own show. That’s right, the theme song for Walker, Texas Ranger, the one with vocals, at least, was performed by none other than the man—Chuck Norris.
As we all know, there are two versions of opening songs for the series—one is an instrumental (used in season one and part of season two) and the other one “Eyes of a Ranger” by Chuck Norris. The Chuck song was composed by Tirk Wilder and the other one by Jerrold Immel. I believe there is no official/public release for these songs so all we really have is ze YouTubes.
Luckily, this die hard fan took the time to compile all (as in all) versions of the intro sequence throughout the show’s 8-season run. A big shout out to YouTube member A6CHANNELSGROUP. Below is said video.
Walker, Texas Ranger theme song lyrics
In the eyes of a ranger
The unsuspected stranger
Had better know the truth of wrong from right
‘Cause the eyes of a ranger are upon you
Any wrong you do he’s gonna see
When you’re in Texas look behind you
‘Cause that’s where the ranger’s gonna be
