Bob Dylan


The lyrics, which were written in pencil on four sheets of paper belonging to the Roger Smith hotel in Washington D.C., will be sold at an auction set to take place in New York on June 24.

The handwritten lyrics of Bob Dylan's hit "Like a Rolling Stone" are set to be sold at an auction this summer. Sotheby's said on Thursday, May 1 that the lyric sheets were expected to sell for an estimated $1 million to $2 million.

The lyrics of the track were written in pencil on four sheets of paper belonging to the Roger Smith hotel in Washington D.C. The sheets also feature doodles of a hat, an animal with antlers, a bird and numerous revisions and additions to the lyrics.

"Like a Rolling Stone" is considered as one of the greatest rock songs ever. Dylan wrote it when he was only 24.

According to Sotheby's, the lyric sheets are being sold by a fan from California "who met his hero in a non-rock context and bought directly from Dylan." "[It's]the only known surviving draft of the final lyrics for this transformative rock anthem," the auction house has said.

The auction will take place in New York on June 24. Two pages of Dylan's "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall" will also be available for auction as part of the sale, which Sotheby's is calling "History of Rock and Roll From Presley to Punk."
