Larry helps write Section Town Song

May 7, 2012

The town of Section is celebrating the essence of its heritage this weekend with a special community program to honor town history and student involvement.

For the past year, students at Section High School have been involved in the project by recording  community history through interviews and video recordings as told by community elders. Students also undertook an in depth photography project on landmarks and people in the community.

Words & music by Larry Long with Alex Gage Little, Ivie Jayne Atchley, Harley Carson, Pacey Carson, Travis Gentry, and Sherry Hancock

Living life, making a living
Working hands all through the week
Fellowship on Sundays, word of God
Hear the choir sing
On Eagles wings
(Chorus)

Chorus
Keep Dancing. Keep singing.
Celebrating your life 
Keep Dancing. Keep singing.
Celebrating your life
Section, Section Section
The place where we live
Section, Section, Section
We have so much give

Keep Dancing. Keep singing.
Section, Section, Section
Celebrate your life  

Breaking ground together
Sharing the fruits of the land
Red ripe tomatoes
Growing in the fresh garden sand
Across the land
(Chorus)

With the heart of a lion
Lifting up a prayer
The foundation of our Sand Mountain
Home of homes

We are friends
We are family
We are neighbors in this town
We are strong in our faith
In each other we are found

Testimonials

I had the most awesome musical experience of my life—when I heard the fourth grade children at Eagle Heights Spanish Immersion school sing “Your Song” honoring our Elders! One of the elders was my son John. WHAT A SONG!

Thank You, Jack Tschida
