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"

Half-breed
That's all
I ever heard
Half-breed
How I learned
To hate the world
Half-breed
She's no good
They warned
Both sides
Were against me
Since the day
I was born

Bam-ba-dam

Bam-ba-dam

Bam-ba-dam
Bam-ba-dam
Bam-ba-dam

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"

Half-breed
That's all
I ever heard

Half-breed
How I learned
To hate the world

Half-breed
She's no good
They warned
Both sides
Were against me
Since the day
I was born

Bam-ba-dam

Bam-ba-dam
Bam-ba-dam
Bam-ba-dam

Bam-ba-dam

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

I am just
A half-breed
That's all
I ever heard

Half-breed
How I learned
To hate the world
Half-breed
She's no good
They warned
Both sides
Were against me
Since the day
I was born

Half-breed
That's all
I ever heard
Half-breed
How I learned
To hate the world
Half-breed
She's no good
They warned
Both sides
Were against me
Since the day
I was born
Both sides
Were against me
Since the day
I was born
