Sourdough Trail

I watched you rise above them all
When you planted seeds in Spring and harvested in Fall.
When wheat was worth its weight in gold
You stored them through winter, and survived the cold.

Well, I was there when you let your struggles go
Stopped searching for your food, your nourishment you'd grow.
With the flour that you came to know
I became your bread and butter, I am your sourdough.

So let it rise all night
Let it ferment into gold
You know history was right
To feed body and mind with this food for the soul.

Well I was there when Pharaoh cracked the whips.
I gave strength to all the slaves that built the pyramids.
And I traveled the world, and I dined with them all.
From peasants by the fire to great kings in their halls.

I fueled the Romans when they conquered all the land.
The French Revolution hit so hard when I was in demand.
And I sailed across the sea, to the new world there.
And the wind across the prairies was the wind in my hair.

So let it rise all night.
Let it ferment into gold
If you want to eat right,
It's what took us this far, so the story is told.

But I never was as valued as the gold that you would seek.
Like the Yukon trail and the holy-grail the mind's of men are weak.
When you found a way to cut down on the cost.
With a quick rise bread that quickly spread and the legend was lost.

Bridge:

And the years have come and gone,
And the dead breads of today, are treating us all wrong.
When you turned your back on the ways of the past.
The problems, are gonna catch up with you fast.

So let it rise all night.
Let it ferment into gold
Where the future is bright.
We've learned from the past, now the secrets unfold.

Outro:

Long live, the Sourdough
Long life, to those who know
Like wheat kings, from long ago.
Long live, the Sourdough.

Sourdough Culture

Tucked away in the Kootenays,
Is the little town of Kaslo.
Rugged mountains on display,
To the valley folk below.

They rowed the Moyie up the lake.
The pioneers of old knew well.
The silver claims that they could stake.
In the Selkirks and Purcells

And the culture thrives,
It’ll make you feel alive,
What they rediscovered there.
The goodness that comes when you really care.
They came and mined the hills above.
The logger’s saws sang praises
While the artists flocked like birds in love.
And they cherished all their days.

So in paradise they made their lives
Through thick and thin they'd smile
The mountain culture and good vibes,
Made it worth the while.

And the culture thrives,
It’ll make you feel alive,
What they rediscovered there.
The good health that comes when you really care.

Silvio came to Kaslo
From Europe where he'd grown.
He learned the ways of sourdough.
And mastered the unknown.

Sourdough's so fine you know
Not only for its taste
The good health that it can bestow
With all the problems that we face.

Bridge

I’m sure you’ve heard the news.
Gluten will get you down.
But not if you choose
A sourdough, cause it changes that around.

And the culture thrives,
It’ll make you feel alive,
What they rediscovered there.
The flavour that comes when you really care.

Sourdough Trail

Its rise and shine, with that small town smile
I can’t help it walk with this lifestyle
But my shift starts up in just a little while
Time to get up I suppose

The Farm fresh eggs and sourdough bread
Fill me up for the day ahead
As I bike to work, I got a song in my head
And this is how it goes

Chorus

I am a Kaslo Sourdough, keep me wild and free
You know the Kaslo Sourdough is the way it ought to be
So just trust me, you got to let go
Ferment it naturally
Cause it’s the renaissance of the sourdough, just you wait and see
Yeah, ------------------ yeah

Well it is a lovely ride, that old wagon road way
To were ‘Pasta Fermenata’ is made
The best in the world, Luigi would say
And the first one by the way

That local grain is ground by stone
Use fresh spring water from the mountain throne
It is home grown Kaslo’s very own
And all I have to say

Chorus

That Kootenay Sourdough keep me young and free
You know Kootenay Sourdough is the way it ought to be
So just trust me, you got to let go
Ferment it naturally
Cause it’s the renaissance of the sourdough, just you wait and see
Yeah, ------------------ yeah

When I finish work I climb those peaks
Ride the trails till I am a tired and weak
And when dinner comes you know what I seek
Some pasta sourdough, yeah!

Yeah, I am Canadian Sourdough keep me happy and free
You know Canadian Sourdoughs are the way it ought to be
So just trust me, you got to let go
Ferment it naturally
Cause it’s the renaissance of the sourdough, just you wait and see
Yeah, ------------------ yeah

Wait and see

Yeah, just wait and see
Yeah, just wait and see
Yeah, just wait and see
Yeah, just wait and see
