  • In the eyes of a ranger,
    The unsuspecting 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 rangers gonna be.

  • Starbrooks from Smith Lane It's good I used to watch that with my mom and dad now I have a baby sis and I still watch it UwU
  • Cheryl HarrisonLove the show and just today search would sang the theme song which I wondered all the time was it Chuck Norris? I think he has a very nice voice.
  • Khaos, Jr. from Khaosjr@yahoo.comOne of WTR's greater debits, at least for me, was using only such a small part of this song -- the chorus and half of the first verse -- for their theme music. It would have been nifty to hear how the rest of this tune sounded, as performed by "The Chuck" ...Or anybody else, for that matter. Here are all three-and-a-half verses, in their entirety, submitted for your reading/singing pleasure:

    VERSE 1:
    In the Eyes of a Ranger, the unsuspecting stranger
    Had better know what's true, and wrong from right
    'Cause the rule of law and order starts at the Texas border
    With the Lone Star of the Ranger shining bright.

    VERSE 2:
    In the Heart of a Ranger, he'll never know the danger
    From desperate men with nothing left to lose.
    That Ranger keeps on coming, so there ain't no sense in running
    He's bound and sure to make you pay your dues.

    VERSE 3:
    When a Ranger's on your trail, he won't know how to fail
    And you can't buy him off at any price.
    So if you decide to ramble, and with your life you'd gamble,
    Know where you are before you roll the dice.

    VERSE 4:
    If you see him coming 'round the outskirts of town,
    Never take that Ranger for a ride.
  • Tim from Tampa, FlI spent the day recently, binge-watching "Walker, Texas Ranger" on TV. I really enjoyed it, especially the theme song sung/spoken by Chuck Norris himself.
