Melodi og tekst: Bud Green/Les Brown/Ben Homer 1944
Gonna take a sentimental journey,
gonna set my heart at ease,
gonna make a sentimental journey
to renew old memories.
Got my bag, I got my reservation,
spent each dime I could afford.
Like a child in wild anticipation,
long to hear that "All aboard".
Seven, that's the time we leave at seven,
I'll be waitin' up for heaven,
countin' ev'ry mile of railroad track
that takes me back.
Never thought my heart could be so "yearny".
Why did I decide to roam?
Gotta take this sentimental journey,
sentimental journey home.
