Back through the years I go wonderin' 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

  • wonderful woman!
  • Donna Chapel does this very well in her show
  • wonderful
  • Wonderful Song!
  • I don't see why Dolly is tagged on Stevie Nicks radio.. just saying...
  • This is a true story from her childhood. There is a picture of her in the book wearing the coat as a child. Makes it that much more heart wrenching when you know it's a true story.
  • Such a precious song <3
  • Legend dolly
  • Love this heartwrenching song...
  • What a poetic song this is...... To bad people can be so cruel..
