´´A cottage in the Country and Roses round the door´´

What I am trying to figure out is why this apparently mis attributed quote causes some people such anquish.
I decided to google the Term ´´A cotttage in the Country and Roses around the door´´which incidentally will see me learning a version of Willie Nelsons Country Willie today, I have always loved that song.

Back to the Not Joh Lennon quote, A quote which I think He or indeed most of the people I know would be proud of and relate too.
“When I was five years old, my Mom told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

And Now For Country Willie
You called me Country Willie
The night you walked away
With the one who promised you a life of joy
You thought my life too simple
And your was much too gay
To spend it living with a country boy
I'm writing you this letter
I write you every day
I hope that you've received the ones before
But I've heard not one word from you
And every day I pray
That you will not forget your country boy
While you're living in the city
With riches round your door
Is this your love
Is this your kind of joy
Or do you find
There's something missing
Does your heart cry out for more
And do you sometimes miss your country boy
[ steel ]
A cottage in the country
With roses round the door
Could not compete
With flashing city lights
But it's all I have to offer
Except for one thing more
A heart so filled with love
That it could die
Well it's time to end this letter
The light of dawn is near
A lonely night has passed
But there'll be more
Just one more thing in closing
For all the world to hear
Come home I love you
Signed your country boy
