From the pen of Bob Dylan, circa 1963, these are the poet-singer's handwritten working lyrics to "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall". Written here are the first three stanzas of the song, with cross-outs & lines signifying repeated words. Dylan wrote these lyrics on 8.5" x 6" stationery. Although the paper bears two significant tears in two places, has a long crease and is stained, the handwritten lyrics, in black ink, are in excellent condition - strong and fully legible. This is an incredible rock & roll artifact showing the working of Dylan's mind as he worked out the lyrics to this classic song. Comes with a signed & dated letter from forensic document examiner James A. Blanco. Estimate: $30,000 - $40,000.
