John Lennon's 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' Lyrics Up For Auction
April 14, 2011
John Lennon's handwritten 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' lyrics are up for auction.
The 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' lyrics, taken from the 1967 album 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band', are expected to fetch up to 200,000 dollars (122,000 pounds) when they go up for auction in May, reports BBC.
The songsheet features the opening lyrics to the song as well as a sketch of four people in a room draped in curtains.
The song has always been linked to the hallucinogenic drug LSD.
Meanwhile, the piano used by The Beatles to write 'Yesterday' was sold at auction last month for 125,000 pounds.
