Her Father Didn't Like Me Anyway Lyrics - Gerry Rafferty



Review The Song (1)


Humblebums (classic acoustic) version

The coat she wore still lies upon the bed
The 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 didn’t feel like asking her to stay
Her father didn’t like me anyway.

Daddy never knew just what she’d seen in me
Daddy didn’t like my hair
Perhaps if we had talked, he’d have seen something in me
But Daddy didn’t really care.

To tell the truth I didn’t have the nerve
I know I only got what I deserved
So now she’s taken leave of me today
Her father didn’t like me anyway.

Daddy never knew just what she’d seen in me
Daddy didn’t like my hair
Perhaps if we had talked, he’d have seen something in me
But Daddy didn’t really care.

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



Vocals: Gerry Rafferty



Over My Head version

The coat she wore still lies upon the bed
The 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 needed more than I could give
She wasn’t happy with the way we lived
I didn’t feel like asking her to stay
Her father didn’t like me anyway.

Daddy never knew just what she’d seen in me
He said I was going nowhere
Maybe if we’d talked, he’d have seen something in me
But Daddy didn’t really care.

To tell the truth I didn’t have the nerve
I know I only got what I deserved
So now she’s taken leave of me today
Her father didn’t like me anyway.

I had forgotten this song by the late lamented Gerry Rafferty until I came across a CD in a junk shop which contained it (amongst many other fine folk songs and performances). I love it's sense of looking on the bright side after what was obviously a painful parting. It's a real "glass half full" song and shows Gerry at his sardonic best. He was a fine performer and writer and is sadly missed.
