Bo Selma Song - Right! Right! (Len Chandler) (12) Selma March Song 11 Jan 98


I just watched show called Impact on CNN about a black white confrontation in Selma Alabama. Portions of the show had a march in the audio that I would love to know all the words to.

Something like:

Pick em up and lay em down, right, right, Pick em up and lay em down, right, right, All the way from selma town right, right.

Other references to the town include "Bloody Sunday" (the name given the event in the papers) "The Edmund Pettus Bridge" (the bridge where white police officers beat the marchers).

Anything people know of in the folk record would be appreciated,

Bo
