Washington (ANI): An early Bob Dylan poem up for sale in New York City is based on the lyrics of a tune penned by late Canadian country singer Hank Snow. The poem about the dead dog - thought to have been written by a 16-year-old Dylan in 1957 - was due to go under the hammer in New York on 23 June (09) - with an expected sale price of 15,000 dollars, reports Contactmusic.

However, bosses at auction house Christie's have found that Dylan's words are in fact 'a revised version of lyrics of a Hank Snow song'. The poem will still be auctioned, along with a collection of Dylan memorabilia.

Auctioneers expect it will still fetch hundreds of dollars, because it "remains among the earliest known handwritten lyrics of Bob Dylan".
