Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. more »

It must have been cold there in my shadow to never have sunlight on your face
You've been content to let me shine you always walked a step behind
I was the one with all the glory while you were the one with all the strength
Only a face without a name I never once heard you complain
Did you ever know that you're my hero and everything I'd like to be
I can fly higher than an eagle but you are the wind beneath my wings

It might have appeared to go unnoticed I've got it all here in my heart
I want you to know I know the truth I would be nothing without you
Did you ever know...
You are the wind beneath my wings
