"Coat of Many Colours" Dolly Parton

Back through the years I go wanderin' once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
I recall a box of rags that someone gave us
And how my momma put the 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 sewin' every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors that I was so proud of

My coat of many colors

That my momma made for me

Made only from rags

But I wore it so proudly

Although we had no money

I was rich as I could be

In my coat of many colors

My momma made for me

As she sewed, she told a 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
Good luck 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 from rags
But I wore it so proudly
Although we had no money
I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
My momma made for me (repeat)
