A handwritten version of the song While My Guitar Gently Weeps by the Beatles was put up for sale on the Momentsintime website. The lyrics were written by George Harrison and Ringo Starr. The cost of a leaf with a song is 195 thousand dollars. Along with the manuscript, the buyer will receive a letter certifying its authenticity.

The text is written on a sheet that was used in the recording Studio to account for the time and cost of the session. The song is written in a crooked handwriting and contains errors. While My Guitar Gently Weeps was released in 1968, the track was included on the self-titled album, also called the White Album. According to Harrison, the lyrics were written under the impression of a trip to India.

It is noteworthy that guitarist Eric Clapton was invited to record the song. The Beatles rarely called in outside musicians, but in this case they had difficulty during recording, and Clapton was a friend of Harrison and agreed to help.
