The handwritten lyrics to Bob Dylan song Like a Rolling Stone have been sold at auction for over $2 million.
The folk-rocker’s scrawl has broken sales records for popular music lyrics snapped up at auction.
The previous record was set in 2010 when John Lennon’s handwritten lyrics for A Day in the Life sold for $1.2 million.
The manuscript for Dylan’s A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall also sold at the Sotheby’s sale – that went under the hammer for $485,000.
