London: Handwritten lyrics of Bob Dylan`s classic hit `Like A Rolling Stone` is to be sold at an auction in New York.

Dylan wrote his career-changing song in pencil on small sheets of a hotel stationery in 1965. The manuscript features corrections and revisions of the lyrics, as well as doodles in the margin and notes about the musician`s life, reportedly.

The lyrics will be 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, the agency who will auction the manuscript, has described it as "the most significant piece of rock material to appear at auction."

The bid is expected to draw 1 million pounds. The manuscript will go under hammer on June 24.
