Try some Angus & Julia Stone, maybe some Bob Dylan (tangled up in blue is a good song to do if you can remember the words). Uh... maybe Yesterday by The Beatles? Blackbird would be nice too.
I made you a cookie but I eated it.

Amazing Grace? Please for the love of God no.

Maybe Johnny Cash? Smashing Pumpkins? Maybe Bill Withers "Ain't No Sunshine"

Hallelujah?

If you can't those notes, think about this: "Nutclamp"

I support the previously suggested Hallelujah and American Pie.
I'd also go for Blue Bossa as a Jazz Standard, espicially if you can get a backing track of the chords.
I also like to add:
Sultans Of Swing - Dire Straits
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

That aside, you've triple posted in the start of the thread, delete those or get reported.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

theres a beatutiful version of son house's laughing in your face somewhere on youtube (search son house laughing in your face). Also red rain, cause and effect and we are going to be friends (not sure if that last ones a cover or not) by the white stripes are easy enough and funsies. Hallelujah is also awesome and as far as standards go, Autumn leaves is always fun a cappela.

Believe In Dreams by Flyleaf.

It's just chords, but still a good acoustic song.

I Miss You by Incubus?

Cold Cash Colder Hearts Acoustic by Thrice. Show them you care.
