I’m listening to the John Anthology and it struck me that Jealous Guy is pretty similar to Child Of Nature . I checked and sure enough they are very similar. I guess he couldn’t sue himself for copyright infringement, but maybe apple01 could have…

I didn’t mean to hurt you……………I’m Just a Child Of Nature
G            Dm/F  Bb…………………..G                 Dm7      Bb
I’m sorry that I made you cry………I don’t need much to set me free
G         G/F#    Em   Em/D………….G            G/F#     Em  G
I didn’t want to hurt you…………….I’m just a Child Of Nature
C             G…………………………….C              G
I’m just a jealous guy……………….I’m one of nature’s children

Half of what I say is meaningless...

I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day

Jealous Guy ‘ is ‘Child Of Nature ‘ except John rewrote the lyrics before it appeared on the ‘Imagine ‘ album. And it hadn’t been released before that point so even if possible (which it isnt – actually there probably are thousands of examples where it did happen) then there was no charge anyway.
