When Jean Laffitte left Baratary Island they fled for their lives.

From Florida to Galveston Island, many took Indian wives

From a mixture of many nationalities a new race was born, with high cheek bones and an olive complexion…there called Redbones

I’m a Redbone

A Melungeon, if you please

My ancestors were the Natchez, Choctaw & Cherokee

Yes I’m a Redbone

And I’m proud I’m One

All of us Redbone are real native sons

Black, white, red and yellow a real potpourri

Doctors, lawyers, heads of states many have come to be

We’ve always answered our countries call to defend our great land

Many have died on the battlefield with a weapon in their hand

Yes, I’m a Red

A Melungeon, if you please

My ancestors were the Caddo, the Seminole, & the Creek

Yes, Redbone

And I’m proud I’m one

All of us RB’’s are real native sons

Some may look down their nose at a people so proud

Our bright flashy dress stands out in any crowd

With a trace of blood in their own veins, they scoff and poke fun but 9 times out of 10 their son or daughter will marry one

Yes, I’m a Redbone

A Melungeon, if you please

My ancestors were Alabama Coushatta, Atakapas-anee,

Yes, I’m a Redbone

And I’m proud I’m one

All of us Redbones are real native sons

Yes, I’m a Redbone

A Melungeon, if you please

My ancestors were the the Kaurakon, Tamuka, Appalach-ee

Yes, I’m a Redbone

And I’m proud I’m one

All of us Redbones is, real natives son

Yeah…and some of us were hog thieves, moonshiners, women chasers, potheads, draft dodgers..why they’d qualify to be president!
