Gerry Rafferty Lyrics

"Her Father Didn't Like Me Anyway" lyrics


Humblebums (classic acoustic) version
The coat she wore still lies upon the bedThe book I gave her that she never readShe left without a single word to sayHer father didn't like me anyway.
She always wanted more than I could giveShe wasn't happy with the way we livedI didn't feel like asking her to stayHer father didn't like me anyway.
Daddy never knew just what she'd seen in meDaddy didn't like my hairPerhaps if we had talked, he'd have seen something in meBut Daddy didn't really care.
To tell the truth I didn't have the nerveI know I only got what I deservedSo now she's taken leave of me todayHer father didn't like me anyway.
Daddy never knew just what she'd seen in meDaddy didn't like my hairPerhaps if we had talked, he'd have seen something in meBut Daddy didn't really care.
The coat she wore still lies upon the bedThe book I gave her that she never readShe left without a single word to sayHer father didn't like me anyway.

Over My Head version
The coat she wore still lies upon the bedThe book I gave her that she never readShe left without a single word to sayHer father didn't like me anyway.
She always needed more than I could giveShe wasn't happy with the way we livedI didn't feel like asking her to stayHer father didn't like me anyway.
Daddy never knew just what she'd seen in meHe said I was going nowhereMaybe if we'd talked, he'd have seen something in meBut Daddy didn't really care.
To tell the truth I didn't have the nerveI know I only got what I deservedSo now she's taken leave of me todayHer father didn't like me anyway.
