Verse:
Ev -'ry roll -ing stone gets to feel a -lone When home, sweet home is far -a -way.
I'm a roll -ing stone who's been so a -lone Un -til to -day.
 
Chorus:
Gon -na take a Sen -ti -ment -al Jour -ney, Gon -na set my heart at ease,
Gon -na make a Sen -ti -ment -al Jour -ney To re -new old mem -o -ries.
Got my bag, I got my res -er -va -tion, Sent each dime I could af -ford.
Like a child in wild an -ti -ci -pa -tion, Long to hear that "All a -board."
Sev -en, that's the time we leave, at sev -en. I'll be wait -in' up for Heav -en,
Count -in' ev -'ry mile of rail -road track that takes me back.
Nev -er thought my heart could be so "yearn -y." Why did I de -cide to roam?
Got -ta take this Sen -ti -ment -al Jour -ney, Sen -ti -ment -al Jour -ney Home.
