Dylan's 'Hard Rain' Lyrics Going up for Auction at Sotheby's

LONDON (AP) — The draft lyrics for one of Bob Dylan's most influential early songs is going up for auction next month.

Sotheby's said Tuesday it expects the manuscript of "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" to fetch between 150,000 pounds and 200,000 pounds ($235,000 and $314,000) at a Sept. 29 London sale.

The auction house says Dylan typed out the lyrics, and made amendments in ink, in a room above the Gaslight Folk Club in New York's Greenwich Village in 1962. It says the revisions show the creative process behind the landmark song, which portends a revolutionary or cataclysmic change.

Last year the final hand-written lyrics to the song sold for $485,000 at Sotheby's in New York. At the same sale a draft of Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" sold for $2 million.
