Bob Dylan's Original Lyrics to 'Like a Rolling Stone' Up For Auction

Bob Dylan's original lyrics for 'Like a Rolling Stone' will soon be up for auction and could be yours for an estimated $1-2 million! Sotheby's will auction the rock-anthem's only known surviving final draft on June 24th in a rock and pop music sale.

The massive hit from 1965 was originally scribbled by Dylan on four sheets of hotel stationary. The pages feature doodles and alternative word choices to the one's you may have once sung along to. The particularly distinctive line, “How does it feel,” is coupled with unused lines, suggesting potential for a completely different song.



Also up for auction at Sotheby’s rock and pop sale are two pages of Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s a-gonna fall,” Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi,” guitars owned by John Lennon and Eric Clapton and a contract signed by Jimi Hendrix.
