Dolly Parton is blond and may have never seen her own shoes, but among the thousands of songs she's written, there is one that is the very essence of patchwork.

The song Coat of many colors refers to a coat that her mother made for her with scraps of fabric that somebody gave them. And she says she was proud of it, "One is only poor only if they choose to be..."
