The original lyric manuscript for Don Mclean's 1971 classic 'American Pie' is to go up for auction today-where it could fetch up to £1 Million.

The manuscript is comprised of 16 pages of unedited notes that reveal the creative process behind the song which has become known as"The Song of the Century".

There are whole fan sites dedicated to deciphering the songs famously cryptic lyrics and it is hoped that the manuscript, which has lay hidden away in Mclean's home for 43 years, will shed some light on their meaning. 

Mclean is selling the manuscipt through auction house Christies in New York.
