It seems pretty common, too, so you might check out books like this.

There's a book called Easy Accordion Solos put out by Mel Bay. It is a book of public domain French
songs, which means that about 75% of the songs in it are old French cafe songs, probably from a similar era as the one you asked about. It comes with a CD.

When I talked to Mel Bay they seemed unaware that these songs were all old French tunes but I see now that mention it in their description of it. I was glad to see a book full of French tunes, because there are so many books with old Americana tunes, and so many of them have the same old songs in every book.
