"Green Coffee Grows on White Oak Tops"
Play Party Game, music and description of game in Wolfe and Fullerton, "Together We Sing," All Grades (or Enlarged) Edition, Follett Pub. Co., p. 245. Collected in Tennessee.
Note: "This Tennessee folk song stems from a time when each cook bought green coffee beans and roasted them to suit her taste before roasting them. For many southern families during the Civil War, the only source for "coffee" was the acorns from the white oak."
