 One of the most beautiful songs of the decade, this award winning ballad was named as the 1984 Country Music Song of the Year, with Gary Morris' recording reaching #4 on the country charts. That same year, Gladys Knight and the Pips recorded this song under the title Hero. It has experienced a successful revival in the current film "Beaches," starring singer/actress Bette Midler, whose recording also reached the charts.

Words and music by Larry Henley and Jeff Silbar, 1982. Such an inspirational song.



G                                    C
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
G                               C  
to never have sunlight on your face.
Am                           D
You were content to let me shine; that's your way.
Am                           D
You always walked a step behind.


G                              C
So I was the one with all the glory,
G                                    C
while you were the one with all the strain.
Am                          D       
A beautiful face without a name; for so long.
Am                              D            B7
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.


Em            C                   G
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
Em             C                G           D
and everything I would like to be?
Em           C              G             D
I can fly higher than an eagle  
C                 G                G
for you are the wind beneath my wings.


G                              C
It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
G                              C
but I've got it all here in my heart.
Am                             D 
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
Am                          D           B7
I would be nothing without you.


Em            C                   G
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
Em             C                G           D
and everything I would like to be?
Em           C              G             D
I can fly higher than an eagle  
C                 G                G
for you are the wind beneath my wings.


Em            C                   G
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
Em             C                G           D
and everything I would like to be?
Em           C              G             D
I can fly higher than an eagle  
C                 G                G
for you are the wind beneath my wings.
