Coat Of Many Colors-crd  Dolly Parton

           Ba[D]ck through the years I go wondering once again
     Back to the seasons of my/ [G]youth
     I re/c[D]all a box of rags that someone gave us
     And how my mamma put the rags to/[G] use
     There were/[D] rags of many colors,and every piece was small
     And I didn't have a coat and it was/[A7] way down in the fall
     Mamma/ s[D]ewed the rags together, sewing/ ev[G]ery piece with love
     She made my/ c[D]oat of many colors,that/ I[A7] was so proud of
           A[D]s she sewed she told the story from the bible she had read
     About a coat of many colors Joseph/ w[A7]ore and then she said
     Per/ha[D]ps this coat will bring you good / l[G]uck and happiness
     And I just could/n[D]'t wait to wear it
     And mamma/ b[A7]lessed it with a kiss[D]
     My c[G]oat of many colors that/ my m[D]amma made for me
     M[G]ade only from rags,but I/ [D]wore it so proud/l[A7]y
     Al/tho[D]ugh we had no money but I/ [G]was rich as I could be
     In my/ c[D]oat of many colors, my/ m[A7]amma made for me[D]
     S[D]o with patches on my britches and holes in both my shoes
     In my coat of many colors,I/ [A7]hurried off to school
     Just to/ f[D]ind the others laughing and mak/in[G]' fun of me
     In my/ [D]coat of many colors,my/ m[A7]amma made for/ [D]me
[D} Oh,I couldn't understand it,for I felt I was rich
     And I told them of the love my mamma/ se[A7]wed in ever stitch
     And I/ t[D]old them all the story ,mamma/ t[G]old me while she
     And how my/ c[D]oat of many colors
     was worth/ mo[A7]re than all of their [D}clothes
     They/ d[G]idn't under stand it and I/ t[D]ried to make them see
     That/ [G]one is only poor only/ [D]if they choose to be/[A7]
     Now I/ [D]know we had no money,but I was/ [G]rich as I could be
     In my/ c[D]oat of many colors, my/ [A7]mamma made for me[G]
     Ye[A]ah just for me.....[D]
