You Make the Dough, I Get the Glory

Ms. Edwards opened for The Hip in Barrie last winter.

Good clean fun.

I Make the Dough, You Get the Glory, Kathleen Edwards

Blazing a trail to the southern cities
From the streets of our hometown.
Basement bars, we played from the heart
In the company of our friends.
If I write down these memories
That I have saved away.
Photographs of the years that have passed
Inside my little brain.

You’re cool and cred’ like Foggerty, I’m Elvis Presley in the 70s.
You’re Chateau Neuf, I’m Yellow Label.
You’re the buffet, I’m just the table.
I’m a Ford Temple, you’re a Maserati.
You’re The Great One, I’m Marty McSorley.
You’re the Concord, I’m economy.
I make the dough, but you get the glory.

Big fish, small pond and some cover songs
That we sang along the way.
We used to midnight run to The Vesta Lounge
– cheese burgers and chocolate shakes.
And once I got drunk with Jeb,
I told him I was in love with you.
But I love you like a brother
So I guess that half of it was true.

And you’re cool and cred’ like Foggerty, I’m Elvis Presley in the 70s.
You’re Chateau Neuf, I’m Yellow Label.
You’re the buffet, I’m just the table.
I’m a Dodge Sparkle, you’re a Lamborghini.
You’re The Great One, I’m Marty McSorley.
You’re the Concord, I’m economy.
I make the dough, but you get the glory.

If I write down these memories
That I have saved away.
Photographs of the years that have passed
Inside my little brain.

I’m sure it’s been said in the finer print
You make me look like Janet May.
Heavy rotation on the CBC,
whatever in hell that really means, yeah.

You’re cool and cred’ like Foggerty, I’m Elvis Presley in the 70s.
You’re the Concord, I’m economy.
I make the dough, but you get the glory
