just dropped in lyrics – tom jones

just dropped in
(originally by mickey newbury)

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

i pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then i followed it in
i watched myself crawlin’ out as i was a-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

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
i said i just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in
