How does it feel? A draft of Bob Dylan's song "Like a Rolling Stone" sold Tuesday for $2 million.

The sale price set a world record for a pop music manuscript, according to Sotheby's auction house.

The document is the only known draft of the final lyrics of this song, according to Sotheby's.

Dylan was 24 years old in 1965 when he recorded the song.

Sotheby's said the fan was a longtime fan "who met his hero in a non-rock context and bought directly from Dylan."

The manuscript was part of Sotheby's auction entitled, "A Rock & Roll History: Presley to Punk," which included documents, instruments and photos.

Among the big sales:

â?˘A Vox guitar organ owned by John Lennon sold for $305,000.
