Gonna take a sentimental journey
Gonna set my heart at ease
Gonna make a sentimental journey
To renew old me-emories
Got my bag
Got my reservation
Spent each dime
I could afford
Like a child
In wild anticipation
Long to hear that
A-all aboard
Seven
That's the time we leave
At seven
I'll be waitin' 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 that sentimental journey
Sentimental jour-ourney home
Sentimental journey...

    My meaning is, 'the story of my young life' without my family and parents forever. We never went home again after c.c.a.s. took 10 of us away and separated us in 1933 and placed us orphanages and foster homes. Heart-breaking? Oh yes. Took that sentimental journey home in Nova Scotia this past September. Tough? Yes again. Sincerely Mrs. F.

    My mom always sang this song to my sisters and i as we were growing up. It was her favorite song. We will be using it at her upcoming funeral at age 89.
