Bruce Springsteen Handwritten Lyric Sheet For "Born To Run" Brings Big Money At Auction

Bruce Springsteen has been one of the most popular rockers out there for decades. Recently a hand written page that served as The Boss' worksheet for penning his hit track "Born to Run" hit auction at Sotheby's.

Born to run was a song that made Springsteen famous and was published in 1975. Before the auction the hand written sheet was expected to fetch between $70,000 and $100,000. Before the gavel fell, the page had been bid up to $197,000.

Sotheby's didn’t offer any details on the person who sold the document or on the person who won the auction via a phone bid. The document is said to show lyrics that weren't recorded and were unpublished. The document did reportedly have "a nearly perfect chorus." The document is also said to be only two identified documents that include the most famous lines from the rock anthem.

The document read in part, "This town'll rip the (out your) bones from your back / it's a suicide trap (rap) (it's a trap to catch the young) your dead unless / you get out (we gotto) while your young so (come on! / with) take my hand cause tramps / like us baby we were born to run."
