In addition to the musician’s handwritten lines, it also includes lyrics written on a typewriter.

The document contains the lyrics: “You say disturb me and you don’t deserve, well honey sometimes you lie, you say you’re sorry, well I’ll go at last… Let you pass.”

These lyrics formed the basis of Most Likely You Go Your Way.
