Dolly Parton - Coat of many colours

Back true the years
i go wondering once again
Back true the seasons of my youth
I recall a box of rags someone gave us
and how my mamma put the rags to use.

there were rags of many colours
and every piece so small
and i didn't have a coat and it was way down in the fall

mamma sewed the rags together
sewing every piece with love
she made my coat of many colours, that i was so proud of

as she sewed she told a story
from the bible she had read
about a coat of many colours Yoseff 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 colours 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 colours, my mama made for me

So with patches on my britches
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

And I just couldn't understand it
For I felt I was rich
And I told them all the love
My momma sewed in every stitch
And I told 'em all the storys
Momma told me while she sewed
And how my coat of many colors
Was worth more than all their clothes

But they didn't understand it
And I tried to make them see
That one is only poor
Only if they choose to be
and I know we had no money
I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
My momma made for me
Made just for me
