A sheet of paper bearing Paul McCartney’s handwritten lyrics to “Hey Jude” sold for $910,000 in an online auction held Friday. The auction was to mark the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ historic split. The handwritten document contains partial lyrics along with annotations including the word “break” used to aid the song’s recording. The document penned by McCartney was sold for more than five times its pre-sale estimate.
