AA chord
Back through the years

I go wonderin once again
                          DD chord
Back to the seasons of my youth
    AA chord
I recall a box of rags that someone gave us
                              DD chord
And how my momma put the rags to use


           AA chord
There were rags of many colors

Every piece was small

And I didnt have a coat
           EE chord
And it was way down in the fall
      AA chord
Momma sewed the rags together
      DD chord
Sewin every piece with love
            AA chord
She made my coat of many colors
     EE chord        AA chord
That I was so proud of



As she sewed, she told a story

From the bible, she had read

About a coat of many colors
       EE chord
Joseph wore and then she said
AA chord
Perhaps this coat will bring you
     DD chord
Good luck and happiness
           AA chord
And I just couldnt wait to wear it
          EE chord                 AA chord
And momma blessed it with a kiss


   DD chord
My coat of many colors
        AA chord
That my momma made for me
     DD chord
Made only from rags
      AA chord          EE chord
But I wore it so proudly
  AA chord
Although we had no money
      DD chord
I was rich as I could be
      AA chord
In my coat of many colors
   EE chord              AA chord
My momma made for me


        BB chord
So with patches on my britches

Holes in both my shoes

In my coat of many colors
  GbGb chord
I hurried off to school
        BB chord
Just to find the others laughing
    EE chord
And making fun of me
      BB chord
In my coat of many colors
   GbGb chord              EE chord
My momma made for me


         BB chord
And oh I couldnt understand it

For I felt I was rich

And I told them of the love
         GbGb chord
My momma sewed in every stitch
      BB chord
And I told em all the story
      EE chord
Momma told me while she sewed
           BB chord
And how my coat of many colors
          GbGb chord                   BB chord
Was worth more than all their clothes
  

         EE chord
But they didnt understand it
      BB chord
And I tried to make them see
     EE chord
That one is only poor
     BB chord                 GbGb chord
Only if they choose to be
      BB chord
Now I know we had no money
          EE chord
But I was rich as I could be
      BB chord
In my coat of many colors
   GbGb chord              EE chord        BB chord 
My momma made for me
