Lennon's Lyrics Fetch $1.2 Million At Auction
Lennon's scrawled notes were purchased by a private American collector, who bid by phone at the Sotheby's sale on Friday (18Jun10).
The double-sided sheet of paper features the late star's edits and corrections, written in black felt marker and blue ball point pen, with annotations in red ink.
Pre-sale estimates predicted the item would only sell for between $500,000 (£333,330) and $800,000 (£533,300).
A Day in the Life was featured on the Beatle's Grammy-winning 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
