Thread Name: Lyr Req: She Touched You (Jim Herd/The Fureys)
Subject: Lyr Add: HER FATHER DIDN'T LIKE ME ANYWAY
I know my memory plays tricks with the years and I wondered if you were thinkling of this? Eddie Furey certainly recorded it with Finbar accompanying
"Her Father Didn't Like Me Anyway"

HER FATHER DIDN'T LIKE ME ANYWAY
(Gerry Rafferty)

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.

The song was written by Gerry Rafferty

Hope this helps
Eddie
