G 
Back through the years I go wondering once again
C
Back to the seasons of my youth
G
I recall a box of rags someone gave us
C
And how my mamma put those rags to use
G
There were rags of many Colours and every piece was small
D
And I didn't have a coat and it was way down in the fall
G C
Mamma sewed the rags together, sewing every piece with love
G D G
She made my coat of many Colours that I was so proud of.

G
As she sewed she told the story from the bible she had read
D
About a coat of many Colours Joseph wore and then she said
G C
Perhaps this coat will bring you good luck and happiness
G D G
And I just couldn't wait to wear it and mamma blessed it with a kiss

C G
My coat of many Colours that my mamma made for me
C G D
Made from only rags but I wore it so proudly
G C
Although we had no money, I was rich as I could be
G D G
In my coat of many Colours my mamma made for me

Key Change

A
So with patches on my britches and holes in both my shoes
E
In my coat of many Colours, I hurried off to school
A D
Just to find the others laughing and making fun of me
A E A
In my coat of many Colours that mamma made for me

A
Well, I didn't understand it for I felt that I was rich
E
And I told them of the love my mamma sewed in every stitch
A D
I told them all the story mamma told me while she sewed
A
And how my coat of many Colours
E A
Was worth more than all their clothes.

D A
They didn't understand it and I tried to make them see
D A E
That one is only poor only if they choose to be
A D A
It’s true, we had no money but I was rich as I could be
A E D
In my coat of many Colours that mamma made for me
A
…..Made just for me .
