I think " Her Father Didn't Like Me Anyway" is a terrific song by Gerry Rafferty. When this song emerged, I remember thinking that it was such a clever idea for a song that I was amazed that Dylan, or some other top songwriter, hadn't thought of it before.
BTW, I saw The Humblebums ( Gerry and Billy ) supporting Fotheringay at the Free Trade Hall Manchester in the 70s, and amazingly, I felt they suffered from lack of projection and failed to strike any rapport with the audience.

Terrific Rafferty song
