Bob Dylan who wrote folk songs and protest lyrics in the 1960’s will have a set of his handwritten lyrics up for auction at Sotheby’s in New York City. Many of Dylan’s lyrics in that era were scrawled on random pieces of paper with pencil or pen.
The lyrics up for auction are from Dylan’s iconic song, The Times They Are A-Changin’ were written on notebook paper in 1963 and the song was released in 1964.
The handwritten lyrics are expected to command around $300,000 at Sotheby’s. Dylan gave the lyrics to fellow folk singer Kevin Krown in the 1960’s. Since this time, the page of lyrics has traded hands several times.
Even though the times may be a changing, Dylan is still performing for eager audiences around the world.
