Yeah, yeah, oh yeah
What condition my condition was in

I woke up this mornin' with the sundown shinin' in
I found my mind in a brown paper bag within
I tripped on a cloud and fell-a 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

    The hippie dropped orange sunshine at about 3pm, then laid down to "come on"-- he awoke at sundown and saw his booze in a paper bag by his bed. He drank some-- to smooth out the edgy striknine in his dose-- then about midnight took a drive into memphis, but should have remained at the "commune" with the other trippers. ? told from experience, by a true experiencer back whennn. Tripp wright-- down in texas
