Sussex By The Sea - Lewes Bonfire Celebrations

« Remember The Vifth

Bonfire Night Poem »

Now is the time for marching
Now let your hearts be gay
Hark to the merry bugles
Sounding along our way

So let your voices ring, my boys,
And take the time from me
And I’ll sing you a song, as we march along,
Of Sussex by the Sea.

For we’re the men from Sussex
Sussex by the sea,
We plough and sow and reap and mow,
And useful men we are we:

And when you go from Sussex,
Whoever you may be,
You tell them all that we stand or fall
For Sussex by the sea.

Oh, Sussex, Sussex by the sea
Good old Sussex by the Sea
You may tell them all that we stand or fall
For Sussex by the sea.

Light is the love of a soldier
That’s what the ladies say
Lightly he goes a-wooing
Lightly he rides away,

In love and war, we always are
As fair as fair can be,
And a soldier boy is the ladies joy
In Sussex by the sea.

Oh, Sussex, Sussex by the sea
Good old Sussex by the Sea
You may tell them all that we stand or fall
For Sussex by the sea.

Far o’er the seas we wander
Wide through the world we roam,
Far from the kind hearts yonder
Far from our dear old home,

But never shall we forget my boys
And true we’ll ever be
To the girls so kind that we left behind
In Sussex by the sea.

Oh, Sussex, Sussex by the sea
Good old Sussex by the Sea
You may tell them all that we stand or fall
For Sussex by the sea.

Written By Mr. W. Ward-Higgs For The Royal Sussex Regiment
