Bob Dylan's Handwritten Notes For "Like A Rolling Stone" Up For Auction
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.01.2014



Billboard reports that the working draft for Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone" will be put up for auction by Sotheby's for between one and two million. The song is about a debutante who becomes a loner when she's kicked out of her upper-class social circles. The draft is written in pencil on four sheets of hotel letterhead stationary. It includes changes, additions, notes and even doodles of a bird and an animal with antlers. It comes from the Roger Smith hotel in Washington, D.C.

The lyrics read: "How does it feel To be on your own. No direction home Like a complete unknown Like a rolling stone."

The name "Al Capone" is written in the margin with a line going to the lyrics "like a complete unknown", hinting that he was experimenting with rhymes. Another note says: "...dry vermouth, you'll tell the truth..."

He was 24 when he recorded the song in 1965. The auction happens on June 24 as part of Sotheby's rock and pop music sale. Sotheby's said the seller was a fan (not named) from California "who met his hero in a non-rock context and bought directly from Dylan." Sotheby's says it is "the only known surviving draft of the final lyrics for this transformative rock anthem."

In 2010, John Lennon's handwritten lyrics for "A Day in the Life" (the last song on the 1967 Beatles album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band) sold for $1.2 million, which is the current record for this kind of sale.
