Bruce Springsteen's 'Born to Run' manuscript sold for $197k at auction

Washington, Dec 6 : Bruce Springsteen's handwritten, working lyric sheet for his song 'Born to Run' was sold for 197,000 dollars at an auction.

The document used to be in the collection of Springsteen's former manager, Mike Appel.

The auction house did not reveal the identity of the seller or the buyer, a person bidding by telephone, the Washington Post reported.

They said that most of the lines in the rough 1974 version, written in Long Branch, N.J., are apparently unpublished and unrecorded, but the manuscript does include a nearly perfected chorus.

The title track of Springsteen's 1975 album has revved up generations of fans some of whom still refer to themselves as "Tramps", like in the song.
