Bob Dylan Handwritten lyrics

13 Oct

Handwritten lyrics, in pencil, unsigned, on both sides of a 7.5 x 10 lightly-lined note book page, dating from around November of 1961. Dylan has written out the lyrics to four songs he was working on memorizing for performances in Greenwich Village. He writes out the complete lyrics to ‘Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down,’ by Roy Acuff; ‘Wreck on the Highway,’ by Dorsey Dixon; and two traditional ballads, the 1840s ‘Mary of the Wild Moor,’ and ‘Crying Holy to the Frost,’ by Irene Amburgey. Dylan has written the titles to three of the songs above their lyrics, with the ‘Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down’ lyrics reading in part: “I been all around this Been down to sunny Alabama My momma always told me son Never let your deal go down
