My father married a Cherokee
My mother's people were ashamed of me
The Indian's said that I was white by law
The white man always called me Indian Squaw

[Chorus]
Half breed
Is 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

[Chorus]

We weren't accepted, and I felt the shame
Fifteen, I left, and 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

[Chorus]

Half breed
That's all I ever heard
Half breed
Let me hate the word
Half breed
She's no good they warned
Both sides were against me since the day I was born

Half breed
Is all I ever heard...
