4. I don't think that's the same story

The book referenced is here:
https://www.scribd.com/book/224278021/Accordion-Crimes
It's a novel, but the first portion, "The Accordion Maker" appears to stand alone as a story, and even if you don't belong to the site in my link, you can at least start reading as a preview. The song is written fro the point of view of the accordion.

From GoodREads:
Pulitzer Prize–winning author Annie Proulx brings the immigrant experience to life in this stunning novel that traces the ownership of a simple green accordion.

E. Annie Proulx’s Accordion Crimes is a masterpiece of storytelling that spans a century and a continent. Proulx brings the immigrant experience in America to life through the eyes of the descendants of Mexicans, Poles, Africans, Irish-Scots, Franco-Canadians and many others, all linked by their successive ownership of a simple green accordion. The music they make is their last link with the past—voice for their fantasies, sorrows and exuberance. Proulx’s prodigious knowledge, unforgettable characters and radiant language make Accordion Crimes a stunning novel, exhilarating in its scope and originality. (less)
