Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Back through the years, I go wand'ring once again
Back to the seasons of my youth

Allemande left and weave
Momma sewed the rags together...
Now you swing and promenade
She made my coat of many colors
That I was so proud of


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round
Walk in and square thru 4
All the way and then a right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by
Touch 1/4, scoot back then
Swing your corner girl and all promenade
In my coat of many colors
My Momma made for me


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
As she sewed, she told a story
From the Bible, she had read
'Bout a coat of many colors Joseph wore...

(Allemande left and weave the ring)
Oh I hope this coat will bring you good luck
Swing your girl and promenade
And I just couldn't wait to wear it
Momma blessed it with a kiss


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
But they didn't understand it
And I tried to make them see
That one is only poor only if they choose
... (Allemande and weave)
Now I know we had no money, (but I was rich as I could be)
Now you swing and promenade
In my coat of many color
My Momma made for me


TAG

Made just.. for.. me

Coat Of Many Colors Lyrics ID: 3871

Back through the years
I go wanderin' 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 fall
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
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
I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
My momma made for me

So with patches on my britches
And 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 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

Lyrics by Dolly Parton.
