     Back through the years I go wondering once again 
     Back to the seasons of my/ youth 
     I re/call a box of rags that someone gave us 
     And how my mamma put these rags to/ use 
     There were/ rags of many colours,and every piece was small 
     And I didn't have a coat and it was/ way down in the fall 
             D                                G7 
     Mamma/ sewed the rags together,sewing/ ever piece with love 
                   D                          A 
     She made my/ coat of many colours,that/ I was so proud of 
     As she sewed she told the story from the bible she had read 
     About a coat of many colours Joseph/ wore and they she said 
           D                                   G7 
     Per/haps this coat will bring you ,much/ love and happiness 
     And I just could/n't wait to wear it 
                 A                    D 
     And mamma/ blessed it with a kiss 
          G7                         D 
     My. coat of many colours that/ mamma made for me 
      G7                   D                 A 
     Made only rags,but I/ wore it so proud/ly 
           D                         G7 
     Al/though we had no money.oh I/ was rich as I could be 
             D                        A                D 
     In my/ coat of many colours,my/ mamma made for me 

     So with patches on my breaches and holes in both my shoes 
     In my coat of many colours,I/ hurried off to school 
               E                                 A 
     Just to/ find the others laughing and mak/in' fun of me 
            E                         B7             E 
     In my/ coat of many colours,my/ mamma made for/ me 
     Oh,I couldn't understand it,for I felt I was rich 

     And I told them of the love my mamma/ sewed in ever stitch 
             E                               A 
     And I/ told them all the story ,mamma/ told me while she sewed 

     And how my/ coat of many colours 
     is worth/ more than all of their clothes 
            A                            E  
     They/ didn't under stand it and I/ tried to make them see 
           A                      E                    B7 
     That/ one is only poor only/ if they choose to be/ 
            E                                 A 
     Now I/ know we have no money,but I'm as/ rich as I could be 
             E                        B7                E 
     In my/ coat of many colours, my/ mamma made for me 
       A                    E 
     Yeah just for me.....
