Title says it all. Bruce's handwritten lyrics to Thunder Road are being auctioned off by Sotheby's New York as part of their Fine Books and Manuscripts auction.

Their estimate of sale price:  $40,000 to $60,000.

I wonder who owned it and is selling it?

I wonder why many of us were convinced that it waved? I suppose I could go and check the vinyl but was it printed as waves on the album? He told Michele (I think it was) ages ago that it sways. Harrumph!

Yeah it was Waves on the album.

That has created the confusion. He sings Sways. As far as I can tell always has.

Wouldn’t mind buying them though. Any suggestions of how to get it past Mrs G?

Fold into a paper plane shape and throw it over her head.
