I think it’s moonshine, but I’m not positive.

Great song. Based on the lyrics it is a kind of pot. “Dixie fried home grown” “Cruisin with a half pound.”

Alabama high-test is certainly a strain of maryjane grown in the ridges and plateaus of north alabama. The stuff thrives during the Alabama summer along with other invasives from all over the world.

Allegedly this song is about a fella from Ardmore, AL (right on the state line at I-65 with its sister city Ardmore, TN) trying to get his half-pound across the state line.

I grew up in the hollows and reside in both states and can attest that drug dealing is very, very common here. Especially meth.

It’s traditional a type of sweet weed grown by rednecks but more recently its also come to mean crystal meth.

It is wicked weed….. Been in ‘Nam and around the world and this stuff pushes the limit as far as home grown…. Just sayin’.
