Handwritten lyrics to Bob Dylan’s classic hit “Like a Rolling Stone” are to be sold at auction in New York in June.

Dylan wrote his career-changing song in pencil on small sheets of hotel stationery in 1965, and the manuscript features corrections and revisions as well as doodles in the margin and notes about the singer/songwriter’s life.

The lyrics are being sold by a Californian friend and business associate of the singer, who bought it from him three years ago. Accompanying the manuscript is a letter from Dylan’s lawyer verifying its authenticity.

Experts at Sotheby’s have described the manuscript as “the most significant piece of rock material to appear at auction,” and expect bids to reach $1.6 million.

The auction will take place in New York on June 24.
