                                The First Edition
JUST DROPPED IN TO SEE WHAT CONDITION MY CONDITION WAS IN

n.c.                                   Dm
Yea, yea, Oh yea.  What condition my condition was in.

Dm                               G               Dm
I woke up this morning with the sun down shining in
D                     Dm                A
I found my mind in a brown paper bag within
D                         D7
I tripped on a cloud and fell eight miles high
G                     G7
I tore my mind on a jagged sky
Dm                    A          G           Dm
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in
n.c.                                    Dm
Yea, yea, oh yea.  What condition my condition was in.

D#m                    G#                         D#m
I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in
D#                        D#m              A#
I watched myself crawling out as I was a-crawling in
D#                   D#m               G#             G#7
I got so up tight I couldn't unwind I saw so much I broke my mind
D#m                   A#         G#            D#m
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

Em                                   A
Someone painted out, you can't get through
                        Em
Big black letters on a caved in sign
E                              Em                B
I had my foot on the gas as I left the road and blew out my mind
Em                             Em7
Eight miles out on Memphis and I ain't got space
A
Eight miles straight up downtown somewhere
Em                   B           D           Em
I just dopped in to see what condition my condition was in
Em                   B           D          Em
I just dopped in to see what condition my condition was in
n.c.                                   N.C.              Em
Yea, yea, oh yea.  What condition my condition was in.
