    Dylan’s A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall at Sotheby’s

    The Dylan lyrics

    The Dylan lyrics

    In 1962, in a small room above the legendary Gaslight Folk Club in Greenwich Village, New York, the 21-year-old Bob Dylan, hunched at a typewriter, wrote what is widely considered one of the greatest songs in the history of rock music. Fifty-three years later, the original type-written manuscript for the revolutionary, A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall, has emerged for sale at Sotheby’s in London, where it is estimated to sell for £150,000-200,000.

     

    Described by Rolling Stone magazine as “the greatest protest song by the greatest protest songwriter of his time”, it marks a key artistic breakthrough by the most influential songwriter alive today. The scratchings-out and revisions offer fresh insight into the creative process behind one of the world’s most loved songs.

     

    The lyrics will be part of Sotheby’s “Rock & Pop” sale in London on September 29.
