The final draft of the lyrics is four pages and includes revisions, notes and even doodles hand written on hotel stationary.

Experts say the manuscript could fetch somewhere between $1 million and $2 million.

“Like a Rolling Stone” was name one of the greatest rock songs of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. Dylan still performs at his concerts.
