Remember the Sussex Branch


David E. Rutan

This song was originally written as a poem commemorating the 30th year since the discontinuance of service on the Sussex Branch. I began singing it to myself to the tune of a folk song and later, when our daughter, Elizabeth arrived, I began signing it to her as well.

My wife noticed that the melody no longer resembled the tune on which it was based, and had me sing it to her so that she could write it down. She arranged it and through the miracle of modern technology, it is now ready for public consumption.

Here then is my Sussex Branch song. I would have no problem with anyone with a musical bent learning and spreading the lore of the Branch through the musical art.

Remember the Sussex Branch:

This song may be disseminated freely as long as I, David E. Rutan, the author am given full credit.
