John Lennon's Lucy Lyrics Up For Auction
Bosses at auction house Profiles in History expect the Fab Four treasure to fetch up to $300,000 (£187,500) when it goes under the hammer during a memorabilia sale on 14 and 15 May.
Lennon's draft contains the opening lyrics to the song that was inspired by one of his son Julian's nursery school drawings.
Along with the lyrics are designs for the cover of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
The weekend auction will also feature lots donated by filmmaker Frank Darabont and special effects and make-up guru Greg Nicotero, which are being sold to raise funds for the Red Cross to aid the charity's Japanese earthquake and tsunami relief efforts.
Other items up for auction include the car from beloved family film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and a handwritten 1924 letter from Walt Disney to Mickey Mouse creator Ub Iwerks.
