’s handwritten lyrics for “Like a Rolling Stone,” one of the most popular songs of all time, will head to auction this summer.

Sotheby’s will sell four sheets of hotel stationery on which Dylan composed a working draft of the song in pencil, complete with revisions, additions, notes and doodles in the margins.

The item is expected to fetch $1 to $2 million for its owner, a longtime Dylan fan from California who “met his hero in a non-rock context and bought directly from Dylan,” according to Sotheby’s.
