And I believe there was a thread asking the exact same question a while back. If you can find it, I'm pretty sure it has quite a list in it.

A D E is such a basic chord progression that you can use them to cover 80% of all blues, rock, country and folk songs as well as the bulk of all singer-songwriter stuff. Great artists have build their entire carreers on just these chords and a capo. Just sit down, play these chords in various timings and strumming patterns and one after another familiar song will pop into your mind. If it doesn't sound familiar, than you all you've got to do is add some catching lyrics and you yourself have become a singer-songwriter

That doesn't use an A, it's an Am & it use's a C too.
I think anyways, I don't really know anything other than the basic chords.

I wouldn't learn any songs just yet. I would practice switching with many different rhythms and progressions or learn more chords such as (but not limited to): Am, Em, and Dm and then eventually F, C, G (Actually, you might wanna learn F, C, and G first...)

GoOd LuCk with w/e you do.

Admitted; you have a point here. All these things and a lot more should be learned. But still I think putting into structured songs whatever limited abilty you have is a good way to go along. Telling people to refrain from making music till all those boring exercises are completely mastered is a very old fashioned sort of music education, relying heavily on discipline rather than fun. I'd go for fun anytime.
