Dolly Parton Coat Of Many Colors Lyrics

Last updated: 01/19/2014 06:20:18 AM

Back through the years I go wandering once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
I DO recall a box of rags that someone gave us
And how my mama 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
Mama sewed the rags together sewing every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors that I was so proud of
WHILE MAMA 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 mama blessed it with a kiss

My coat of many colors that my mama 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 mama made for me

So with patches on my britches 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 mama made for me
And oh I couldn't understand it COS I felt I was rich
And I told them of the love my mama sewed in every stitch
I EVEN told them of thAT story mama told me while she sewed
And how my coat of many colors was worth more than all their clothes

They didn't understand it and I tried to make them see
That one is only poor only if they choose to be
IT'S TRUE we had no money but I was as rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors my mama made for me made just for me
