A handwritten draft of one of Bob Dylan's biggest hits is rolling into auction this summer.

Sotheby's New York is auctioning off a working draft of "Like a Rolling Stone" for an estimated $1 million to $2 million.

The four-page draft of the 1965 hit is scrawled in pencil on stationary from the Roger Smith Hotel in Washington.

It contains notes, revised lyrics, and sketches.

Sotheby's did not identify the auctioneer but says the fan bought the draft directly from Dylan.

The auction will take place June 24.
