The three pages of lined paper feature the lyrics of Oasis classics Half The World Away, Headshrinker, and Cigarettes and Alcohol, each handwritten by Noel, and are being offered for sale with a £6,000 - £8,000 estimate.

The lyrics have previously been on display at the 'Chasing The Sun' Oasis memorabilia exhibition in 2016, curated by photographer Lawrence Watson. 

Each page measures 30cm by 21cm, with provenance stating they originated from the collection of noted Oasis collector Brian Garcia, who has provided a certificate of authenticity for each page.

In addition the lyrics have further letters of provenance from Noel Gallagher's 'Big Brother Recordings' record company.

You can follow the sale at Omega Auctions.

In February 2023 a set of lyrics handwritten by Noel for the song Live Forever sold for £1,900 at Ewbank Auctions.

However the record price is for the Noel Gallagher handwritten lyrics for Wonderwall which sold for £46,875 at a PropStore auction in November 2022, smashing the £6,000 estimate.
