Bob Dylan's Handwritten Lyrics to be Auctioned

(Gibson) Bob Dylan's hand-scrawled lyrics for "The Times They are A-Changin'" will be a-sold to the highest bidder during a December 10 auction. The words to the classic protest song were written on "a sheet of unruled three-hole notebook paper," according to Sotheby's auction catalog. The song went on to become the title track of Dylan's 1964 album.

The Dylan lyrics sheet will be auctioned off as part of a large collection of books and manuscripts. Sotheby's expects the lot to sell for more than $200,000.

The reason that the "The Time They are A-Changin'" lyrics are no longer in Dylan's care is because he ditched the sheet as soon as he memorized the words. He gave the sheet to his folk-singing friend Kevin Krown. When Krown died in the '90s, he left the paper to Mac and Eve McKenzie, who were also fixtures on the New York folk scene in the '60s. - more on this story
