OAKEN LEAVES [1]. AKA and see - "Touch and Take." English, Country Dance Tune (6/8 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. The tune was originally printed by John Playford in his Dancing Master, second edition (1652), under the title "Touch and Take," and retained under that title for editions 3a (1657) and 3b (1665). Later dance researchers and reconstructionists (such as Cecil Sharp) sometimes exchanged dance directions for a tune that they preferred instead of the one Playford printed with the tune.
