HALF BREED

w & m by John D Loudermilk, 1959 Cedarwood

(Spoken:) Here's a story about a boy who was always in trouble,
and just because his pappy was a white trader and his mammy was an Indian maid:

Well your pappy was a trader and your mammy was een Indian maid, boy
Your pappy was a trader and your mammy was een Indian maid, boy
We know all about it and we don't want a half breed around boy
Before sundown you'd better be out of town, boy

Half Breed, they're hot on your trail, boy
Half Breed, you'd better not run
Half Breed, you'd better get a gun, boy,
better get a gun and stand, boy
You'd better get a gun and stand

Well a man is a man as long as his plans are made, boy
A man is a man as long as he can stand unafraid, boy
So don't let 'em dog you, no don't you let 'em don't let 'em, boy
Cause you got a load to carry and you're just as necessary as they, boy
