article imageBob Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone lyrics to be sold at auction

By Kev Hedges     May 1, 2014 in Entertainment
New York - It has been described as "the most significant piece of rock material to appear at auction." There are doodles in the borders, sketches of a woman's stiletto shoe, a fedora hat and many strange shapes. Oh, and the lyrics to a classic folk-rock song.
Bob Dylan put a great deal of work into writing these lyrics back in some hotel in 1965, now the four sheets of paper that contain the original hand-scrawled lyrics to Like a Rolling Stone will be sold at auction by Sotheby's in New York.
The auctioneers expect the doodles to fetch more than $2 million (£1.2m). The original manuscript contains additions, corrections, words crossed out and some notes attached to the original lyrics about Joan Baez. We will all remember the chorus line in the song, "How does it feel...." But the lyrics on the sheet contain lines that never made it to the song that Dylan perhaps considered as an alternative; such as, "Get down and kneel..." and also "Shut up and deal...."
It was this song that changed the singer-songwriter from a humble folk singer to a world-renown rock icon. It also changed the course of social and popular culture, reports BBC Entertainment.
Dylan was just 24 when he scribbled down the notes to one of the most iconic songs in rock history. Rolling Stone magazine named the tune as the Greatest Song of All Time in 2011. Last year the legendary artist released an interactive video of the song.
