Lot 7114: Handwritten working lyrics to 'You Strum and I'll Sing,' one page, 8 x 14.75, no date, signed in the lower right in pencil by Wood. Wood pens eighteen lines of a song written for a collaboration with Rod Stewart, in part: "Not a million miles away / there is a groove I like to play / It can be done with just the 2 of us / But the whole family should be on the bus / You strum and I'll sing." The last two lines are written on a separate sheet affixed at the bottom. In fine condition. Although Wood and Stewart—friends from their days in the Faces and Jeff Beck Group—had hoped to produce a collaborative album called You Strum and I'll Sing, the project never came to fruition; however, they recorded the song together for Ronnie Wood's 2006 album Anthology: The Essential Crossexion.
