### How to write text through an arrow

Hi,

I need to literally write on top of an arrow. For example
>-(viii)->>
The (viii) needs to be on top of the doublehead rightarrow with a tail

I am using

documentclass{lmcs}
usepackage{amssymb}
usepackage{graphicx}

I came up with this:

$\rightarrowtail \!\!\!\!\!\rightarrow \mbox{\tiny \hspace*{-.22in}\!\!\!\!{\rm (viii)}}$ and the etc.
by $\rightarrowtail \!\!\!\!\!\rightarrow \mbox{\tiny \hspace*{-.22in}\!\!\!\!{\rm (viii)}}$

Is there an easier way to do this?

Thanks,
Peaches
