Dolly Parton Sings "Coat Of Many Colors" In Irish Pub

Dolly parton Songs | Dolly Parton Sings

Dolly Parton is just too funny! No matter where she goes, she brings laughter and sunshine.... and music! 

During a vacation to Ireland, Dolly popped in a local pub to relax, but ended up putting on a show for some of her biggest fans! While at the Páidí Ó Sé's Pub, a man came up to her and told her he knew how to play one of her most well-known songs, "Coat Of Many Colors". Dolly couldn't resist, and said,

Hello... and welcome to Ireland! My name is Dolly and I'm here on vacation, and I had not planned to sing tonight. I was going to be entertained but he says he knows my song, 'Coat Of Many Colors'  and he asked me if I would sing it. 

The crowd was so pleased, and we're pretty sure they'll remember that night forever!

"Coat Of Many Colors" was released in 1971 from Dolly's album of the same name, Coat Of Many Colors. The song was written by Dolly as a memoir of her childhood. The song tells the story of how Dolly's mother sewed her a coat with mixed fabrics when she was younger, and as she stitched the "coat of many colors" together she told the biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors. Her mother said, "Joseph wore and then she said / Perhaps this coat will bring you / Good luck and happiness".

The story is simply beautiful, and of course was huge hit, reaching #4 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart!

Back through the years
I go wonderin' once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
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
Every piece was small
And I didn't have a coat
And it was way down in the fog
Momma sewed the rags together
Sewin' every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors
That I was so proud of
As she sewed, she told a story
From the bible, she had read
About a coat of many colors
Joseph wore and then she said
Perhaps 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
I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
My 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
In my coat of many colors
My momma made for me

And oh I couldn't understand it
For I felt I was rich
And 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 how my coat of many colors
Was worth more than all their clothes

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