image for Give Peace a Chance - The Truth Behind John's Lyrics

As John Lennon's lyrics go up for auction in July the truth about why he wrote the song is finally revealed in lost tapes from the Dakota building discovered by Liverpudlian comedian Stevie Riks .

As a result of John Lennon continually being fed rice by Yoko he responded by asking her to give peas a chance.

At a recording session that day Lennon recalled his earlier conversation with his wife and a hit was born.

Yoko realising the potential to modify the phrase to unite the world in respect of the current Vietnam crisis and make some cash towards her widow's fund ordered John to change the wording and the rest is now history.
