Hi Folks. Can anyone help me identify a song with this synopsis.

Its about (skin) colour. It alludes to the white man how he gets RED when out in the sun, BLUE when he's very cold, YELLOW when he's ill, GREY when he dies. I've been told the song ends with something like "and YOU have the cheek to call ME coloured!" It's maybe from the seventies.

I almost want to say Buffy St. Marie might have sung it.

Other color of skin
Nut brown maiden
Brown colleen in Star of County Down
Yellow Rose of Texas
Nellie was a Lady ...dark Virginie Bride
Dublin int he rare old times...skin as dark? black? as coal
One eyed one horned flying purple people eater
Various sea shanties .. "yellow girls"

A quick google seems to come up with a poem with those words.Also a sung version on youtube. I assume that you would have searched yourself so they are probably not what you are after

I did find the poem (When I born I black) but didn't get the youtube sung version, unless it was "Lets kick racism out of football". If your youtube was different, do you have the ref Rain Dog please?
