In south Alabama just out of Louisville
Grand daddy, he'd got him a still
White lightnin' when the sun goes down
Give me that stuff and pass it around
Mighty mighty pleasin' Papa's corn squeezin'
Whoa lordy, give me Pike county white lightnin'

A city boy come and he said I'm tough
I want to drink me some country stuff
He took a sip and he drank it on down
I seen him moan as he laid on the ground
As lightnin' started flashin', thunder started crashin'
Picked him up and cranked him up and gave him white lightnin'

Hey, G-men, T-men, the BTF too
Searchin' for the place with the guns and the booze
Lookin' tryin' to book him, Papa's still a cookin'
Grand Papa's cookin' Pike county white lightnin'

Well, a city boy come and he said I'm tough
I want to drink me some country stuff
He took a sip and he drank it on down
I heard him moan and he hit the ground
As lightnin' started flashin', thunder started crashin'
It would pick him up and crank him up and gave him white lightnin'

Yeah, the G-men, T-men, the BTF too
Searchin' for the place with the guns and the booze
Lookin' tryin' to book him, Papy is a-cookin'
Papy is a-cookin' Pike county white lightnin'

Yeah, lookin' tryin' to book him and pappy's still a-cookin'
And Papy is a cookin' Pike county white lightnin'
