Bob Dylan’s handwritten lyrics for three classic songs for sale


Bob Dylan’s handwritten lyrics for three of his classic songs should go on sale.

The original manuscripts of “The Times They Are A-Changin”, “Lay Lady Lay” and “Subterranean Homesick Blues” were acquired by a souvenir company, which gives fans the opportunity to purchase them.

The three pieces of rock history come with heavy price tags. “The Times They Are A-Changin” “is listed for $ 2.2 million (£ 1.8 million), while they are asking for $ 1.2 million (£ 961,000) for” Subterranean Homesick Blues. ” “Lay Lady Lay” is the cheapest of the three, priced at just $ 650,000 (£ 520,000).

The lists include photos of the handwritten pages, showing Dylan’s verses and strikethrough words and instrumental notes. You can check them out on the Moments In Time website now.

In the past month, Dylan has released two songs – marking his first new original material in eight years. “Murder Most Foul” addressed the assassination of JFK in 1963 in the form of a 17-minute ballad, while “I Contain Multitudes” made reference to Walt Whitman, The Rolling Stones, Edgar Allen Poe and Frank Sinatra.

Dylan has not released a new album of original material since his 35th studio album “Tempest” in 2012. In the meantime, however, he has released three standard albums made famous by Frank Sinatra – “Shadows in the Night” ( 2015), ‘Fallen Angels’ (2016) and ‘Triplicate’ (2017) – as well as new editions of its Bootleg series.

Meanwhile, the handwritten lyrics to The Beatles’ “Hey Jude” were auctioned off for $ 910,000 (£ 728,000) earlier this month. The item was nine times more expensive than its original estimate at a sale organized by Julien’s Auctions, based in New York.
