My father married A pure Cherokee My mother's people Were ashamed of me The Indians said That I was white by law The white man always Called me Indian squaw [CHORUS] Half-breed That's all I ever heard Half-breed How I learned to hate the word Half-breed She's no good they warned Both sides were against me Since the day I was born We never settled Went from town to town When you're not welcome You don't hang around

The other children Always laughed at me Give her a feather She's a Cherokee [repeat CHORUS] We weren't accepted And I felt ashamed Nineteen, I left them Tell me who's to blame My life since then Has been from man to man But I can't run away From what I am [repeat CHORUS 2x to fade]
