     "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)"
                            (Mickey Newbury)

[Notes: the guitars are so distorted it's hard to tell, but the chord
 notated as Am7 might actually be A7#9 (54555x) - try both and see
 which you think sounds more like the record.  The bass is definitely
 tuned below concert pitch (see the second break), and I suspect that
 the distorted rhythm guitar is as well - try tuning to DGCFAD and
 playing in Em/Fm/F#m.  -- AWR]

Intro:

	(backwards guitar over B minor pentatonic scale; end on D note)

Chorus:

	Dm [N.C.]
	Yeah   yeah   oh, yeah

	What condition my condition was in

Verse 1:

	  (Dm)                          G/D               Dm
	I woke up this morning with the sundown   pouring in
	                                          Am7  [5x555x]
	I found my mind in a brown paper bag   within
	    Dm                            F
	I tripped on a cloud and fell a-eight miles high
	 Bbmaj7
	I tore my mind  on a jagged sky
	   Dm                  Am7                      Dm
	I just dropped in   to see what condition my condition was in
