Back through the years
I go wandering once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
And I recall a box of rags that someone us
And how my momma the rags to use
There were rags of many colors
But every piece small
And I didn't have a coat
And it way down in the fall
Momma the rags together
Sewing every piece with love
She my coat of many colors
That I so proud of
And while she , she a story
From the bible, she had read
About a coat of many colors
Joseph and then she
I hope this coat will bring you
Good luck and happiness
And I just wait to wear it
And momma blessed it with a kiss
Chorus:

My coat of many colors
That my momma for me
only from rags
But I it so proudly
Although we no money
I rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
Momma for me

So with patches on my britches
Holes in both my shoes
In my coat of many colors
I hurried off to school
Just to find the others laughing
And making fun of me
And my coat of many colors
That momma made for me

And oh I understand that
'Cause I I was rich
And then I them of the love
My momma in every stitch
And then I em all the story
That momma me while she sewed
And why my coat of many colors
Was worth more than all their clothes

They didn't understand it
And I tried to make them see
One is only poor
Only if you choose to be
It is true we had no money
But I rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
Momma for me
just for me
