Coat Of Many Colors

Song Author Dolly Parton Performer: Dolly Parton Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Back through the years I go wondering once again
Back to the seasons of my [C]youth
I [G]recall a box of rags that someone gave us
And how my momma put these rags to [C]use  

There were [G]rags of many colors and every piece was small
And I didn't have a coat and it was way down in the [D7]fall   
Momma [G]sewed the rags together sewing [C]ever piece with love
She made my [G]coat of many colors [D7]that I was so proud [G]of  


As she sewed she told the story from the bible she had read
About a coat of many colors Joseph wore and then she [D7]said   
Per[G]haps this coat will bring you much [C]love and happiness
And I just couldn't wait to [G]wear it
And momma [D7]blessed it with a [G]kiss

My [C]coat of many colors that my [G]momma made for me
[C]Made only rags but I [G]wore it so prou[D7]dly   
Al[G]though we had no money oh [C]I was rich as I could be
In my [G]coat of many colors [D7]my momma made for[G] me  


So with patches on my breaches and holes in both my shoes
In my coat of many colors I hurried off to [D7]school
Just to [G]find the others laughing and [C]making fun of me
In my [G]coat of many colors [D7]my momma made for[G] me  


Oh I couldn't understand it for I felt I was rich
And I told them of the love my momma sewed in ever [D7]stitch
And I [G]told them all the story [C]momma told me while she sewed
And how my [G]coat of many colors
Is [D7]worth more than all of their [G]clothes

They [C]didn't under stand it and I [G]tried to make them see
[C]That one is only poor [G]only if they choose to[D7] be   
Now I [G]know we have no money but [C]I'm as rich as I could be
In my [G]coat of many colors [D7]my momma made for [G]me  


Back through the years I go wondering once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
I recall a box of rags that someone gave us
And how my momma put these rags to use

There were rags of many colors and every piece was small
And I didn't have a coat and it was way down in the fall
Momma sewed the rags together sewing ever piece with love
She made my coat of many colors that I was so proud of

As she sewed she told the story from the bible she had read
About a coat of many colors Joseph wore and then she said
Perhaps this coat will bring you much love and happiness
And I just couldn't wait to wear it
And momma blessed it with a kiss

My coat of many colors that my momma made for me
Made only rags but I wore it so proudly
Although we had no money oh I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors my momma made for me

So with patches on my breaches and holes in both my shoes
In my coat of many colors I hurried off to school
Just to find the others laughing and making fun of me
In my coat of many colors my momma made for me

Oh I couldn't understand it for I felt I was rich
And I told them of the love my momma sewed in ever stitch
And I told them all the story momma told me while she sewed
And how my coat of many colors
Is worth more than all of their clothes

They didn't under stand it and I tried to make them see
That one is only poor only if they choose to be
Now I know we have no money but I'm as rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors my momma made for me
