Judy Garland's childhood home in Grand Rapids, Minnesota

We take you a look inside Judy Garland's childhood home, where she lived from birth in 1922 to 1926. This dwelling is located in Grand Rapids, in the state of Minnesota. Now a museum, it remains an everlasting memory of how Judy Garland and her family once lived.

Compared to Michael Jackson's small and cramped house occupied by a large family, Judy Garland's two-storey property in the 1920's would have felt like a mansion for a young girl.

Judy Garland was singing with her two older sisters at the time so she was still a future movie star in the making. Her mother, Ethel Gumm, would have kept their home clean and well maintained considering that only girls lived here and their dad during their short five year stay.

I would put Judy Garland's family in the middle-class or upper middle-class category of Americans.

If Judy Garland's childhood home in Grand Rapids wasn't big enough, she lived in a larger home, or should I say mansion in Bel-Air, Los Angeles when she was cast as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.

You know I'm a dreamer
But my heart's of gold
I had to run away high
So I wouldn't come home low
Just when things went right
It doesn't mean they were always wrong
Just take this song, and you'll never feel
Left all alone

Take me to your heart
Feel me in your bones
Just one more night
And I'm comin' off this
Long & winding road

I'm on my way
I'm on my way
Home sweet home...
Tonight, tonight
I'm on my way
I'm on my way
Home sweet home...
You know that I've seen
Too many romantic dreams
Up in lights, fallin' off
The silver screen

My heart's like an open book
For the whole world to read
Sometimes nothing
Keeps me together
At the seams

I'm on my way
I'm on my way
Home sweet home...
Tonight, tonight
I'm on my way
Just set me free
Home sweet home...

Home sweet home...
Home sweet home...
Home sweet home...

I'm on my way
I'm on my way
Home sweet home...

Yeah!

I'm on my way
Just set me free
Home sweet home...
