I am looking for the words and music for "Eight Second Hero", that Randy Travis sang (early 80s - mid-90s?). Sure could use some help... Thx

Are you sure Randy Travis did a song of that title? I checked his discography and the only song I found with hero in the title is "Heroes and Friends".

Is this the song you are looking for (by Morten Vestly):

No, Gary, that is not the song. I located the site the song was sung on (http://www.onthisside.net/episodeguide/sympathy.html). It appears to have been done on the TV show, Touched By An Angel", second season. Look at the link, above, and see the 10th paragraph.

But I still cannot locate the words or music for this song.

Here is the 'Touched By An Angel' episode. The song is only a minute long and runs from 19:40 to 20:40.

I suspect that this was written just for the TV program and that may be all there is to it.
If you want to write the words out I'll be glad to stick the chords in for you.
