Bob Dylan handwritten and signed working lyrics for his song "Ballad of a Thin Man."

Handwritten and signed by Bob Dylan in pencil.

When Bob Dylan first moved to New York he lived with the McKenzie family in Greenwich Village, playing at various small clubs. He did a lot of writing at the apartment, and these working lyrics are accompanied by a letter of provenance for Peter McKenzie who attests that Dylan gave the lyrics to his mother.

Dimensions: 8.5 x 10.5 in

Condition: The handwriting and signature are very strong, clear, and fully legible. The paper itself has some staining, a 1-inch tear on the right side (the torn piece is included and can be repaired), and the page was repaired on the back with tape where the page appears to have been torn in two, down the center. There is a .75-inch hole in the center, towards the bottom.

Authenticity: Letter of Provenance from Peter McKenzie, James Spence Authentication (JSA) Letter of Authenticity, and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
