DOLLY PARTON


Coat Of Many Colors Lyrics

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

There were rags of many colors and every piece was small
And I didn't have a coat and it was way down in the fog
Momma sewed the rags together sewin' every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors 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 Joseph wore and then she said
"Perhaps this coat will bring you good luck and happiness"
And I just couldn't wait to wear it and momma blessed it with a kiss

My coat of many colors that my momma made for me
Made only from rags but I wore it so proudly

Although we had no money oh I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors my momma made for me

So with patches on my britches and holes in both my shoes
In my coat of many colors I hurried off to school
Just to find the others laughing and making fun of me
In my coat of many colors my momma made for me

And oh I couldn't understand it for I felt I was rich
And I told them of the love my momma sewed in every stitch
And I told 'em all the story momma told me while she sewed
And how my coat of many colors was worth more than all their clothes

But they didn't understand it and I tried to make them see
That one is only poor only if they choose to be

Now I know we had no money but I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors my momma made for me
Made just for me

This song means to me that just because other people may think it's ugly, stupid, gross, weird etc., as long as you love it and it's special to you, that's all that matters, and you should be proud of that.

The song reminds me of my life and its makes me to shade tears, but i will never give up for life. Let the song serve as a lesson to the less previlages and let them take courage from the song.
