The Beatles first recorded While My Guitar Gently Weeps on July 25 1968, using the lyrics on the auctioned sheet of paper.
The lines omitted from the final version read:
I look from the wings at the play you are stagingThe reverse of the page features the lyrics to Hey Jude in the hand of Beatles road manager Mal Evans.
While my guitar gently weeps
As I'm sitting here doing nothing but aging
Still my guitar gently weeps
