DEVILLIER('S) TWO-STEP. Cajun, Two-Step (4/4 time). USA, La. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Sing-Out): BB(Vocal)BBAAB(Vocal). A traditional Cajun dance tune. Devillier is a family rather than a place name, notes Raymond Francois (1990), who says related tunes include "Don't Bury Me," "Cemetary (The)," "Enterre-moi Pas" and "Enterre-moi Pas dans l'Cimetiere."
