Walker Texas Ranger
was an American TV series which ran from April 1993 to May 2001 on CBS. The lead character Cordell Walker, was played by Chuck Norris, an actor known for playing the strong silent type. Unfortunately, the silent went out of the window for the theme song, which was composed by Tirk Wilder. Originally the program was introduced by an instrumental, but sometime in the second series, the song replaced it. While Norris is no diva, it is doubtful if anyone from Bing Crosby to Shirley Bassey could have sounded less corny with a song like "Eyes Of A Ranger". As Bobby Crush said of his own composition "Orville's Song
", this is one for the sick bucket. "Eyes Of A Ranger" has one saving grace, it runs to less than a minute.
