Handwritten working lyrics to ‘Cornflower Blue,’ one page, 8.25 x 10.5, no date, signed in the lower right corner by Wood. Wood pens five verses to an apparently unreleased song. In part: “I wake up and ring the office / I’m speaking from Cornflour [sic] Blue / Hey there Ruby Red, / I want you t’ live here too, / A white house in the bushes, / Just come and wander through, / We don’t care who you pushes, / Just get to Cornflour blue.” In fine condition, with subtle edge toning. Quite rare, these are the only handwritten lyrics from Wood that we have offered. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
