Bm7 . . . . . . . . . E7
Isn't this a lovely day
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Aj6
To be caught in the rain?
Bm7 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . E7
You were going on your way
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Aj6
Now you've got to remain

Just as you were going, leaving me all at sea

The clouds broke, they broke and oh!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .E7
What a break for me

I can see the sun up high
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Aj6
Tho' we're caught in the storm
Bm7 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . E7
I can see where you and I
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Aj6
Could be cozy and warm

. . . . . . G . .D . . A7
Let the rain pitter patter
G . . .A7 . . .G . . . .A7
But it really doesn't matter
G . . .F#m . . . B9
If the skies are gray
Dj7 . . . . . . . . . . . . . .E7 . . . . . . . . . Aj6
Long as I can be with you it's a lovely day

Sentimental Journey –
m Les Brown, Ben Homer, w Arthur Green

A   {chromatic bluesy}
Gonna take a Sentimental Journey,
  . . . . . . . A4 .Am67 . E
Gonna set my heart at ease.
A . . . . . . . . . . Am67 . . . . . E
Gonna make a Sentimental Journey,
A . . . . . .A4. A .E . A
to renew old memories.

Got my bags, got my reservations,
Spent each dime I could afford.
Like a child in wild anticipation,
Long to hear that, "All aboard!"

Db.D . . Db . D . Db . D . Bm . D.Ab.A
Seven...that's the time we leave, at seven
Ab.A.Ab.A.Bm7.A.Bb .B
I'll be waitin' up    in heaven,
Bb . B . Bb.B . A . . . .E
Countin' every mile of railroad
D . . . . . . . . A . . . . . E7
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 Journey home.

Sentimental Journey back home
