Bob Dylan has handwritten and signed his working lyrics to "Ballad of a Think Man" in pencil on 8.5 x 10.5 paper. When 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. The paper in fair condition with some staining but the writing is clear and legible and the signature is strong. 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 hold in center towards the bottom. In addition to the letter from Peter McKenzie, these handwritten lyrics also come Letter of Authenticity, a letter from forensics expert James Blanco and another letter of authenticity from a Dylan handwriting expert and archivist Clinton Heylin. Also comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity.
