COAT OF MANY COLOURS

Dolly Parton

 D
Back through the years I go wondering once again
 G7
Back to the seasons of my/ youth
 D
I re/call a box of rags that someone gave us
 G7
And how my mamma put the rags to/ use

 D
There were/ rags of many colours,and every piece was small
 A
And I didn't have a coat and it was/ way down in the fall
 DG7
Mamma/ sewed the rags together,sewing/ every piece with love
 DA
She made my/ coat of many colours,that/ I was so proud of
 D
As she sewed she told the story from the bible she had read
 A
About a coat of many colours Joseph/ wore and then she said
 DG7
Per/haps this coat will bring you ,good/ lluck and happiness
 D
And I just could/n't wait to wear it
 AD
And mamma/ blessed it with a kiss

 G7D
My coat of many colours that my/ mamma made for me
 G7DA
Made only rags,but I/ wore it so proud/ly
 DG7
Al/though we had no money.But I/ was rich as I could be
 DAD
In my/ coat of many colours,my/ mamma made for me 

 E
So with patches on my breaches and holes in both my shoes
 B7
In my coat of many colours,I/ hurried off to school
 EA
Just to/ find the others laughing and mak/in' fun of me
 EB7E
And my/ coat of many colours,my/ mamma made for/ me

Oh,I couldn't understand it,for I felt I was rich
 B7
And I told them of the love my mamma/ sewed in ever stitch
 EA
And I/ told them all the story ,mamma/ told me while she sewed
 E
And how my/ coat of many colours
 B7
is worth/ more than all of their clothes

 AE
They/ didn't under stand it and I/ tried to make them see
 AEB7
That/ one is only poor only/ if they choose to be/
 EA
Now I/ know we had no money,but I was/ rich as I could be
 EB7E
In my/ coat of many colours, my/ mamma made for me 

 AaE
made it she for me.....
