How Can I Go On lyrics

In addition to the private photographs from Jim Hutton's archive which all appear in Mercury and Me, Jim also had these: Freddie's hand-written lyrics for How Can I Go On.

 

The song appears on Freddie's solo Barcelona album recorded with legendary opera diva Montserrat Caballé.

 

Jim reckoned the creases in these lyrics were a result of Freddie's 'wearing them' for a day or two leading up to the recording, in the back pocket of his jeans.
