Cool Travis Picking

I've been practicing alot of travis picking recently and have the problem that I simply don't know enough songs that use it to practice it as much as I want. I've already got the basic ones down like "Dust in the Wind" "Landslide"(smashing pumpkins version of course and a few beatlest songs like Julia and Dear Prudence down, but i just need a list of some other songs that use Travis picking, any suggestions would be great.

Simon & Garfunkel - "The Boxer"
Bob Dylan - "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright", "Buckets Of Rain"

these are the ones that first sprang to mind

travis is method of finger picking named after Merle Travis, us mainly use your thumb index and middle finger and there is a steady base throughout the song. if you want to see what it is or how it sounds listen to some of the songs we posted
