J'ETAIS AU BAL {HIER SOIR} (I Went to the Dance Last Night). Cajun, Two-Step. USA, southwestern Louisiana. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB {Greenblatt}: BBA(Vocal)BBAA(Vocal)BBA(Vocal)BB {Francois}. Raymond Francois (1990) believes the tune for this popular Cajun song is borrowed from an American one, and in fact "Oh, Susannah" and "Get Along Home Cindy" (particularly the latter) seem to be related tunes.

Source for notated version: Iry LeJeune (La.) [Francois].

Printed sources: Francois (Yé Yaille Chère!), 1990; pp. 169-170. Greenblatt (The Cajun Fiddle Tune Book), 1985; p. 14.

Recorded sources: Goldband Records GB-LP7740, Iry LeJeune.
