17 Times Dolly Parton Was Basically The Best Person Ever

Coat of Many Colors tells the story of how a young Dolly learned to overcome bullies by choosing to feel appreciation for the love of family rather than shame over the fact that her coat was handmade. Dolly wrote the song’s lyrics on dry cleaning receipts from Porter Wagoner’s designer coats while she was on tour with him. Her family used the original coat for other purposes, and her mother made a replica to display in Dolly’s Chasing Rainbows Museum.
