Coat of Many Colors

Back through the years
I go wandering once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
I recalled 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 fall
Momma sewed the rags together
Sewing every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors
That I was so proud of
 
And 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
Though I wore it so proudly
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
 
So with patches on my britches
And holes in both of my shoes
In my coat of many colors
Well, 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
But I told them of the love
My momma sewed with every stitch
And I told them 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
