                COAT OF MANY COLOURS by Dolly Parton  
Back through the years I go wondering once again 
Back to the seasons of my/ youth 
I / recall a box of rags that someone gave us 
And how my mamma put those rags to/ use 
There were/ rags of many colours, and every piece was small 
And I didn't have a coat and it was/ way down in the fall 
       D                                 G 
Mamma/ sewed the rags together, sewing/ every piece with love 
              D                         A               D
She made my/ coat of many colours,that/ I was so proud of 
As she sewed she told the story from the Bible she had read 
About a coat of many colours Joseph/ wore and then she said 
    D                                    G 
Per/haps this coat will bring you ,much/ love and happiness 
And I just/ couldn't wait to wear it 
           A                 D 
And mamma/ blessed it with a kiss 
    G                          D 
My coat of many colours that/ mamma made for me 
G                     D                 A 
Made only rags,but I/ wore it so proud/ly 
   D                            G 
Al/though we had no money.oh I/ was rich as I could be 
       D                        A               D 
In my/ coat of many colours,my/ mamma made for me 
So with patches on my breeches and holes in both my shoes 
In my coat of many colours,I/ hurried off to school 
          E                            A 
Just to/ find the others laughing and/ makin' fun of me 
        E                        B7             E 
In my/ coat of many colours,my/ mamma made for/ me 

Oh,I couldn't understand it,for I felt I was rich 
And I told them of the love my mamma/ sewed in ever stitch 
       E                               A
And I/ told them all the story mamma/ told me while she sewed 
And how my/ coat of many colours 
          B7                     E
was worth/ more than all of their clothes 
      A                           E 
They/ didn't understand it and I/ tried to make them see 
      A                      E                 B7 
That/ one is only poor only/ if they choose to be 
       E                                  A 
Now I/ know we have no money,but I'm was/ rich as I could be 
       E                         B7              E 
In my/ coat of many colours, my/ mamma made for me 
 A            E 
Yeah just for me.....
