    THE WIND BENEATH MY WINGS      Gary Morris

G                                     C
It must have been cold there in my shadow
G                                C
To never have sunlight on your face
Am                               D
You've been content to let me shine
Am                         D
You always walked a step behind
G                           C
I was the one with all the glory
G                                      C
While you were the one with all the strength
Am                     D
Only a face without a name
Am                        D      D#
I never once heard you complain

Em             C                   G
Did you ever know that you're my hero
Em          C               G  
And every-thing I'd like to be
Em           C            G   
I can fly higher than an eagle
Am                                   G
'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings

G                                  C   
It might have appeared to go un-noticed
G                                C  
But I've got it all here in my heart
Am                              D
I want you to know I know the truth
Am                          D   D#
I would be nothing without you

Go to chorus
Am                            G
You are the wind beneath my wings
