Her Father Didn't Like Me Anyway

  • (Gerry Rafferty)

    The coat she wore still lies upon the bed
    That book I gave her that she never read
    She left without a single word to say
    Her father didn't like me anyway

    She always wanted more than I could give
    She wasn't happy with the way we lived
    I could have felt like asking her to stay
    Her father didn't like me anyway

    Daddy never knew just what she saw in me
    Daddy didn't like my hair
    Perhaps if we'd have talked he might see something in me
    But Daddy didn't really care

    For to tell the truth I didn't have the nerve
    And I know I only got what I deserved
    And now she's taken leave of me today
    And her father didn't like me anyway

    As sung by Iain MacKintosh
