Dolly Parton - Coat of Many Colors

One of Dolly Parton's (many) signature songs. Very few other singers have covered this song, probably because it is so intensely autobiographical. She composed the song, based on her own experience growing up dirt poor in a one-room Tennessee cabin, and wearing a patchwork coat as a child.

This song isn't a good vehicle for displaying her voice; for that, listen to her (and Vince Gill) perform I Will Always Love You.

  1. I'm no fan of country music, but I love Dolly. I think a person would have to be heartless not to like her.
