NEW YORK — Someone was willing to pay big bucks for an early glimpse of what would become the Boss’ “runaway American dream.”

A handwritten, working lyric sheet for Bruce Springsteen’s 1975 hit “Born to Run” sold at Sotheby’s Thursday for $197,000, well exceeding pre-sale estimates of between $70,000 and $100,000. The auction house didn’t reveal the identity of either the seller or the telephone bidder who bought the document.
