Marc,
  I don't know how many of these songs you will be familiar with so I'll include words
for ones that are like this.   A lot are words with chords over them.


Johnny Cash does this in E.  
    E
I hear the train a comin' it's rollin 'round the bend

and I a'int seen the sunshine since I don't know when
       A                                             E
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison, and time keeps draggin' on.
           B7                                    E
But that train keeps a movin' on down to-San-An-Tone

(same pattern for all verses)

When I was just a baby my mame told me, "Son
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns"
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die
When I heat the whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry.

Well, if they freed me fom this prison, if that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move it all a little farther down the line
Far from Fulsom Prison, that's where I want to stay
And I'd let that lonsome whistle, blow my blues away
