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 might have seen something in me,
But Daddy didn't even care.

To tell the truth I didn't have the nerve,
I know I only got what I deserve;
For 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 might have seen something in me,
But Daddy didn't even 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.
