Just Dropped In (to See What Condition My Condition Was In) - Jerry Lee Lewis/The First Edition/Bettye LaVette/Mickey Newbury/Sharon Jones/The Die Haut


Just Dropped in
I woke up this mornin' with the sundown shinin' in
I found my mind in a brown paper bag, but then
I tripped on a cloud and fell eight miles high
I tore my mind on a jagged sky
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

(Yeah, yeah, oh, yeah, what condition my condition was in)

I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in
I watched myself crawlin' out as I was crawlin' in
I got up so tight I couldn't unwind
I saw so much I broke my mind
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

(Yeah, yeah, oh, yeah, what condition my condition was in)

Someone painted "April Fool" in big black letters on a dead end sign
I had my foot on the gas as I left the road and blew out my mind
Eight miles outta Memphis and I got no spare
Eight miles straight up downtown somewhere
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

I said "I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in"
Yeah, yeah, oh, yeah
