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 waiting up for heaven,
countin' every 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.
