Sentimental Journey was written in 1942 with lyrics by Bud Green and music by Ben Homer and Les Brown,because of a musicians strike it wasn’t recorded until 1944.

This song gave Doris Day her first Billboard Number 1 single in 1944 and its popularity grew even further when it became the unofficial homecoming theme for many veterans at the end of World War 2.
