half breed lyrics – shania twain

written by eileen twain & paul sabu

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

half breed
is 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

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
is 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

we weren’t accepted and i felt the shame
fifteen i left and tell me whose to blame
my life since then has been from man to man
but i can’t run away from what i am

half breed
is 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
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.
