Sentimental Journey

Lyrics:Bud Green
Music:Les Brown ,Ben Homer

The song was publishe 1944.

Les Brown and His Band of Renown had been performing the song,
but were unable to record it because of the 1942–44 musicians' strike.
When the strike ended, the band, with Doris Day as vocalist,
had a hit record with the song, Day's first #1 hit, in 1945.
The song's release coincided with the end of WWII in Europe
and became the unofficial homecoming theme for many veterans.
The recording was released by Columbia Records
as catalog number 36769, with the flip side "Twilight Time".
The record first reached the Billboard charts on March 29, 1945
and lasted 23 weeks on the chart, peaking at #1.
The song actually reached the charts after the later-recorded
"My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time".

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

I got my bag, I got my reservation
Spent each dime I could afford
Like a child in wild anticipation
I long to hear that "All aboard!"

Seven, that's the time we leave - at seven
I'll be waiting up for heaven
Counting every mile of railroad track - that takes me back

I never thought my heart could be so yearny
Why did I decide to roam
Gotta take a sentimental journey
Sentimental journey home
