A
Back through the years

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


           A
There were rags of many colors

Every piece was small

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



As she sewed, she told a story

From the bible, she had read

G#out a coat of many colors
       E
Joseph wore and then she said
A
Perhaps this coat will bring you
     D
Good luck and happiness
           A
And I just couldnt wait to wear it
          E                 A
And momma blessed it with a kiss


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


        B
So with patches on my britches

Holes in both my shoes

In my coat of many colors
  F#
I hurried off to school
        B
Just to find the others laughing
    E
And making fun of me
      B
In my coat of many colors
   F#              E
My momma made for me


         B
And oh I couldnt understand it

For I felt I was rich

And I told them of the love
         F#
My momma sewed in every stitch
      B
And I told em all the story
      E
Momma told me while she sewed
           B
And how my coat of many colors
          F#                   B
Was worth more than all their clothes


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