Now that you mention it, the original mail contained two errors. You
correctly point out Spike's error in naming the song's title -- those
lyrics are from "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)". The second
error is in attribution. That song is also a George Harrison song,
and also has nothing to do with John Lennon. I think it was published
a few years before "My Sweet Lord" though they may easily have ended
up on the same live or compilation album.
