Back through the years i go wonderin' once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
And i recall 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 sewin' every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors that i was so proud of

And while she sewed, she told a story from the bible, she had read
About a coat of many colors joseph wore and then she said
"i hope 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 but i wore it so proudly

Although we had no money oh i was rich as i could be
In my coat of many colors momma made 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 my momma made for me

And oh i couldn't understand that 'cause i thought i was rich
And then i told them of the love my momma sewed in every stitch
And i told 'em all the story momma told 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 was rich as i could be
In my coat of many colors momma made for me
Made just for me
