Latest update on 27/10/2014

Artist: John Lennon
Author: John Lennon
Label: Apple
Year: 1971

On Imagine album and n°1 UK. Working title: Child Of Nature, home rehearsed at George Harrison's Esher mansion (Kinfauns) in May '68. Child Of Nature was one of the songs rejected for the double white album (along with Junk - see there). Lennon gave it a second chance in preparation of Let It Be and Get Back, but it ended up on bootlegs (Off White, Unsurpassed Demo's, Artifacts 1958-1970 and PIL). Jealous Guy has the same melody with different lyrics.
