G chordG
Back through the years I go wondering once again
C chordC
Back to the seasons of my youth
G chordG
I recall a box of rags that someone gave us
C chordC
And how my momma put these rags to use

G chordG
There were rags of many colors and every piece was small
D7 chordD7
And I didn't have a coat and it was way down in the fall
G chordG C chordC
Momma sewed the rags together sewing ever piece with love
G chordG D7 chordD7 G chordG
She made my coat of many colors that I was so proud of


As she sewed she told the story from the bible she had read
D7 chordD7
About a coat of many colors Joseph wore and then she said
G chordG C chordC
Perhaps this coat will bring you much love and happiness
G chordG
And I just couldn't wait to wear it
D7 chordD7 G chordG
And momma blessed it with a kiss

C chordC G chordG
My coat of many colors that my momma made for me
C chordC G chordG D7 chordD7
Made only rags but I wore it so proudly
G chordG C chordC
Although we had no money oh I was rich as I could be
G chordG D7 chordD7 G chordG
In my coat of many colors my momma made for me


So with patches on my breaches and holes in both my shoes
D7 chordD7
In my coat of many colors I hurried off to school
G chordG C chordC
Just to find the others laughing and making fun of me
G chordG D7 chordD7 G chordG
In my coat of many colors my momma made for me


Oh I couldn't understand it for I felt I was rich
D7 chordD7
And I told them of the love my momma sewed in ever stitch
G chordG C chordC
And I told them all the story momma told me while she sewed
G chordG
And how my coat of many colors
D7 chordD7 G chordG
Is worth more than all of their clothes

C chordC G chordG
They didn't under stand it and I tried to make them see
C chordC G chordG D7 chordD7
That one is only poor only if they choose to be
G chordG C chordC
Now I know we have no money but I'm as rich as I could be
G chordG D7 chordD7 G chordG
In my coat of many colors my momma made for me
