A sheet of Bob Dylan’s handwritten lyrics is on sale for $1.375 million.

The 81-year-old singer’s original parchment containing the words to his classic 1965 single “Like a Rolling Stone” — which is surrounded by several doodles and includes obvious edits in his notes — is currently listed on the Moments in Time memorabilia site. for a staggering seven-digit sum.

And if that proves too expensive for fans, they also have the option of splashing out on the handwritten lyrics for another of Dylan’s 1965 song, “Mr. Tambourine Man,” which is for sale on the website for $425,000.

According to TMZ, Dylan’s team sold the lyric sheets to a collector more than a decade ago and are now going on sale to the public.

Although both songs were released in the same year, they are on two different albums, with “Like a Rolling Stone” on “Highway 61 Revisited” and “Mr. Tambourine Man’ from ‘Bringing It All Back Home’.

Meanwhile, a new version of Dylan’s 1963 song “Blowin’ in the Wind” is expected to sell for at least $750,000 when it goes up for auction in London on July 7.

It will be available on a unique disc in Ionic Original format and it will be the first time in 60 years that the music legend has re-recorded the song.

‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ also marks the debut of the Ionic Original format, first announced in April by producer T Bone Burnett, 74.

Burnett said: “Sixty years after Bob first wrote and recorded ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’, he gives us a new recording of his song.

“One that is both deeply relevant to our time and resonates with decades of the artist’s life and experience. We are grateful to Christie’s for their belief in the ‘Ionic Original’ and for bringing Bob’s masterful recording to the world on a unique and meaningful way.”

The Ionic Original format is, according to Burnett, “the pinnacle of recorded sound. It’s archival quality. It’s future-proof. It’s one of one.”

“Blowin’ in the Wind” is reportedly the first of several songs that Bob Dylan is re-recording for the format.
