A prized piece of rock n' roll memorabilia Bruce Springsteen's handwritten lyrics of his classic hit "Born to Run," sold at Sotheby's, for $197,000 at an auction on Thursday.

There is no word on who entered the winning bid.

Sotheby's says the manuscript was written by the Boss himself in 1974, and contains numerous lines that have never been recorded or published.

Rolling Stone Magazine ranked "Born to Run" at number 21 on their list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.
