"Alabama High-Test" as written by and Ketch Secor....
Alabama high test
Got me in a big mess
Higher than a wild cat
Runnin' from the wolfpack
They're gonna put me in the slammer
If they catch me with that Alabama high test

65 southbound
Cruisin' with a half pound
Blue lights spinin' round
Better put the hammer down
Dirt road, Tennessee
Ain't nobody stoppin' me
Short run, state line
Gotta keep makin' time
Alabama high test

Huff paint, cocaine
Playin' chicken with a train
Smack dab, meth lab
Mellow out, rehab
Percocet, cigarette
I don't need no more of that
But gimmie some down-home
Dixie-fried homegrown
Alabama high test

Alabama high test
Alabama high test
Got me in a big mess
Runnin' from the wolfpack
They're gonna put me in the slammer
If they catch me with that Alabama high test

Drug bust, disgust
Plead with the circuit judge
Son don't be coy
Send you up the river, boy
Jump suit, chain gang
Shackles on my feet and hand
Standin' on I-65
Wishin' I was rolling by with
Alabama high test

Alabama high test
Alabama high test
Got me in a big mess
Runnin' from the wolfpack
They're gonna put me in the slammer
If they catch me with that Alabama high test

    General CommentI believe it originally referred to moonshine but given some other lyrics i'd say that "Alabama high test" refers to cannabis grown in the backwoods of Alabama.

    General CommentGreat song, accurate lyrics... love it!

    It's about weed, for sure. I'm not sure about Alabama, but if they're on I-65 Southbound, and then they're on a dirt road in TN, then they came from Kentucky. It's our number one cash crop, unofficially of course.
