Gonna take a sentimental journey.
Gonna set my heart at ease.
Gonna take a sentimental journey
To renew old memories.

Got my bag and 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?
Gonna take a sentimental journey
Sentimental journey home.
