Half-Breed

Chords and lyrics for Half-Breed by Cher Lloyd

My father married a pure Cherokee
 
My mother’s people were  
A 
ashamed of me
 
The indians said that I was white  
G 
by 
 
law
 
The white  
Am 
man always called  
C 
me "Indian  
E 
Squaw"
Am 
HALF-BREED
F 
that’s all I ever heard

HALF-BREED

how I learned to hate the word

HALF-BREED

she’s no good they warned
A 
Both sides were  
C 
against 
 
 
Gm 
me since  
G 
the day  
Am 
I was born.
 
We  
E 
never 
 
 
Am 
settled 
 
 
C 
went 
 
 
F 
from town to town
 
When you’re not  
A 
welcome you don’t hang around
 
The other children always  
Am 
laughed at me
 
Give her a feather she’s a  
G 
Cherokee
G#aug 
HALF-BREED
 
that’s  
F 
all 
 
 
C 
 
 
G 
ever 
 
 
E 
heard
Am 
 
 
C 
 
.
F 
 
We weren’t accepted  
A 
and I felt ashamed
 
Nineteen I left them tell me  
Am 
who’s to blame?
 
My life since then  
A 
has been from man to man
But I can’t run away from what I am.

HALF-BREED

that’s all I ever heard
. . .
