The unpublished lyrics of an anti-nuclear protest song written by Bob Dylan in 1963 are to be sold at auction in London next month.

The words to Go Away You Bomb were found in a drawer in Sweden.

Christie's said the lyrics were written for an unpublished book of protest songs when Dylan was working on his second album, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.

The sheet of typed lyrics, including handwritten deletions and alterations, is expected to sell on 26 June between £25,000 - £35,000.
