Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton

Capo 3

[Intro]
G

G
  Back through the years

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


[Verse 1]
           G
There were rags of many colors
G
Every piece was small

And I didn't have a coat
           D
And it was way down in the fall
      G
Momma sewed the rags together
      C
Sewin every piece with love
            G
She made my coat of many colors
     D        G
That I was so proud of


[Verse 2]
G
As she sewed, she told a story
G
From the bible, she had read

About a coat of many colors
       D
Joseph wore and then she said
   G
Perhaps this coat will bring you
     C
Good luck and happiness
           G
And I just couldn't wait to wear it
          D                 G
And momma blessed it with a kiss


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



[Verse 3]
        A
So with patches on my britches
    A
and holes in both my shoes

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


[Verse 4]
    E    A
And oh I couldn't understand it
    A
For I felt I was rich

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


[Chorus]
         D
But they didn't understand it
      A
And I tried to make them see
     D
That one is only poor
     A                 E
Only if they choose to be
      A
Now I know we had no money
          D
But I was rich as I could be
      A
In my coat of many colors
   E              D
My momma made for me
          A
Made just for me

Really great version of this classic tune, though I

found putting the capo on the third fret makes it

perfectly in tune with the original recorded version.

Thanks for putting this track up

Capo on the third fret was a little high for me to sing so I stuck to the original. I had the seniors at the hospital jumping in the seats to this classic. Thanks for your help in cheering up the old folks.
