‘Hey Jude’ Lyrics Sell For $910,000

A plain sheet with words in black felt pen was sold for just under a million dollars this past Friday. Cashing in at over six times the estimated value, Paul McCartney’s handwritten lyrics to ‘Hey Jude’ just got a new owner. On the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ breakup, Julien’s Auctions wrote about the item, “McCartney used the lyrics during the recording at Trident Studios, London, in July 1968 and later gifted them to a studio engineer. McCartney famously wrote the song for John Lennon’s son Julian as a source of comfort during the divorce of his parents John and Cynthia Lennon. The song was originally called ‘Hey Jules'”. The song eventually went on to be nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Quite the purchase for a lucky Beatles fan!
