Amie - Damien Rice
Knockin on Heavens Door - Bob Dylan
You and Me - Lifehouse
Pin You Wings and Don't Slow Down - Copeland
Acoustic #3 - Goo Goo Dolls
Stare at the Sun - Thrice


These are all pretty easy, just have a few chords and they are all really cool sounding songs. If you stick with it and keep progressing these will be really easy really fast.

IMO your best bet are simple songs that use the basic chords. I assume you're familiar w/Classic Rock songs so I'll list a few.
Wild Thing: G-C-D, back and forth.
Knockin on Heavens door: (as already suggested)
G-D-Am (You can alternate C w/Am every other time)
Neil Youngs "Heart of Gold" (the 1st song I learned) Em-D-Em for the choruses. Em-C-D-G on verses.
If you like Country music try Hank Jr. "Country boy can Survive". D-Am-G-D. Throw in an F on the break.
