NEW YORK- Handwritten lyrics that Bruce Springsteen made for the song "Born to Run" were worth a lot more than experts thought.

An anonymous bid of $197,000 won the scribblings at auction at Sotheby's Auction house where experts predicted the lyrics would go for 70 to a hundred thousand dollars.

"Born to Run" actually only made it to number 23 on the Billboard Chart in 1975, but it aged incredibly well.

It ranks number 21 in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of all-time greatest hits.
