[C]Back through the years I go wondering once again
Back to the seasons of my [F]youth
I reca[C]ll a box of rags someone gave us
And how my mamma put those rags to u[F]se
There were [C]rags of many Colors and every piece was small
And I didn't have a coat and it was [G]way down in the f[G]all
Mamma s[C]ewed the rags together she sewied [F]ever piece with love
She made my [C]coat of many Colors [G]I was so proud [C]of
As she [C]sewed she told the story from the bible she had read
About a coat of many Colors Joseph [G]wore and then she said
P[C]erhaps this coat will bring you good l[F]ove and happiness
And I just [C]couldn't wait to wear it
As mamma b[G]lessed it with a [C]kiss
My [F]coat of many Colors that my [C]mamma made for me
[F]Made from only rags but I [C]wore it so pro[G]udly
though we [C]didn't have much money oh I was [F]rich as I could be
In my [C]coat of many Colors my [G]mamma made for [C]me
[C]So with patches on my britches and holes in both my shoes
In my coat of many Colors well I [G]started off to school
Just to [C]find the children laughing and [F]makin' fun of me
In my [C]coat of many Colors my [G]mamma made for [C]me
N[C]ow I didn't understand it for I felt that I was rich
And I told them of the love my mamma [G]sewed in ever stitch
[C]All about the story mamma [F]told me while she sewed
And how my [C]coat of many Colors
WAs worth [G]more than all of their [C]gold
They [F]didn't under stand it and I [C]tried to make them see
[F]One's only poor only [C]if you choose to [G]be
We didnt [C]have no money but [F]I'm as rich as I could[C] be
In my [C]coat of many Colors my [G]mamma made for [C]me
In my [C]coat of many Colors my [G]mamma made just for [F]me[C]
