Maj. John Singleton Mosby:
We took our men from Texas, Kentucky, Virginia / The mountains and the backwoods and plains. / We put them under orders - guerilla fighting orders / And what we lacked in numbers / We made up with speed and brains. / To the Rebs and Yankee strangers / They called us Mosby's Rangers. / Both North and South / They knew our fame. / The Gray Ghost is what they called me, / John Mosby is my name.

I was reading the letters in the local fish-wrap's TV page yesterday, & somebody asked about The Gray Ghost, saying his friends thought he was crazy. I used to love that show....I couldn't think of any theme music for it, so had to content myself with the theme from "Swamp Fox"(of course, starring Lt Frank Drebbin, aka Leslie Nielsen as Francis Marion), but when I got to the part "...got no shelter when it rains, all we've got are Yankee brains.." I went, "Hey, that ain't right." Tried to find something on YouTube, but no luck, but actually, I think maybe I'd rather just remember it as really good. I've only run across a few shows that really have stood the test of time besides the mega-classics: I'm Dickens, He's Fenster, Real McCoys, Dobie, and The Bob Cummings Show/Love That Bob.
