Cher - Half-breed Lyrics

My father married a pure cherokee
My mother's people were ashamed of me
The indians said 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 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"


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
