Just Dropped In 
by Kenny Rogers


[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
                              Dm
        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

[repeat chorus]
