6. Dolly Parton – “Coat Of Many Colors”
Dolly wrote this song about her own Mother, who made her a coat out of many different colored rags while telling the biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors. Though she was made fun of by schoolmates, she still has the coat even today.
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
