The original "Just Dropped In"

Turns out, Kenny Rogers didn't actually write the iconic "Just Dropped In". It was actually a guy by the name of Mickey Newbury. His version is actually pretty far out, you dudes aughta check it out!

I did not know that.  Thanks for posting this.  Great version of this song!  I may even like this better than the version by Kenny Rogers & The First Edition!
Take 'er easy, Dudes!

I dig ol' Willie's version there.  It just might be my new favorite song of his.
I don't go to church on Sunday
Don't get on my knees to pray
Don't memorize the books of the Bible
I got my own special way

I like Kenny Rogers' version but this one by Newbury sounds interesting too. Good thing that Kenny didn't just repeat the earlier version.
