Lyrics
Oh, in the grey

Grey ghost that I call home

In the grey

Stony lonesome I call home

In the grey

Grey ghost that I call home

In the grey, grey ghost that I call home

Oh, he will not

Walk out the river now

He will not walk out the river

He will not walk out the river, singing

Don’t fall through the stars

Don’t fall through them

Don’t fall through the stars

Don’t fall through them



On the docks in Memphis

With the boom box, nodding out, singing

Don’t fall through the stars

Don’t fall through them

Don’t fall through the stars

Don’t fall through them

Don’t fall through the stars



Oh, in the grey

Grey ghost that I call home

In the grey

Stony lonesome I call home

In the grey

Grey ghost that I call home

In the grey, grey ghost that I call home



In the trail of the barge

And the light upon the brine

He has staked these thoughts

And the force is undivided, singing

Don’t fall through the stars

Don’t fall through them

Don’t fall through the stars

Don’t fall through them



Sleepy-eyed, the man is wading

Out into the night, singing

Don’t fall through the stars

Don’t fall through them

Don’t fall through the stars

Don’t fall through them

Don’t fall through the stars



Embracing some hard-luck citizen

Disgraced like some strange Bob Balaban

And placing your heels down in the sand

And



In the grey

Grey ghost that I call home

In the grey

Stony lonesome I call home

In the grey

Grey ghost that I call home

In the grey, grey ghost that I call home

Oh, in the grey

Grey ghost that I call home

In the grey

Stony lonesome I call home

In the grey

Grey ghost that I call home

In the grey, grey ghost that I call home

In the grey, grey ghost that I call home

In the grey, grey ghost that I call home

Oh, wow. This is beautiful. What a wonderful look at Father Mulcahy -- the humor and the heartbreak and the pathos and the redemption, all mixed up together. This is a great song choice, too -- I wouldn't have thought of Mike Doughty for him, but it works well for me as a song about how his whole career in Korea is grey area. Nothing is black and white the way he probably thought it was going to be.

Really nice job bringing motion into these clips, too -- older shows tend to be more visually static, but this vid doesn't feel that way to me.

Wow, I love this! I didn't know the song before but it works so well! And I love that you've given such a complete picture of all the many things Father Mulcahy contributes, how varied his role is and how it brings him into contact with everyone, how essential he is to the camp outside of his official duties, but how important those official duties still are to him. And the final shot is just perfect. <3 Thank you!

I watched MASH as a kid and this just brings back all the lovely feelings of the show. Mulcahy was a wonderful, wonderful character and you did a wonderful job capturing all the things he did for the 4077th

This was so good! Really loved this look at Father Mulcahy and all the ways he was so much more than just a priest.

I have almost no memory of Father Mulcahy from my childhood watching, but this was a lovely portrait of a man trying to rise to the occasion, no matter the absurdity, unexpectedness, or emotional distress.

Great character-vid for Father Mulcahy. Love how serious and unsentimental this is while still keeping all the wonderful humour and the touching moments.
