You Belong with Me - Taylor Swift.

After you learn that one, you can play a lot of her songs with the same chord progression like D, A, Em, G (just different capo positions). Except Love Story, that's a bit tricky cos of key change.

p.s. Though if you're a guy, you might find yourself cracking up laughing trying to sing her lyrics, which could add some difficulty.

summer of 69 bryan adams,take it easy(eagles),good riddance time of your life(greenday),wonderwall(oasis),a lot of john denver songs are easy a classic one being take me home country roads its just basically G,D,Em and C. the green fields of france by the fureys is another good one,your beautifull(james blunt),knockin on heavens door(guns n roses),9 crimes(damian rice),the sound of silence(simon and garfunkel) then you've got johnny cash's songs majority of these are based upon E,A and B7 chords like folsom prison blues and all them,hurt is a classic aswell...goodluck
Music...Enough said.



Merci
