Default Easy Songs for Picking Party

Like several here Iím concentrating on fingerpicking blues. Iím reasonably happy with my progress but Iím not sure the songs Iím working on are the best for me to try to play at the Tuesday night picking party Iíve been doing. Iím thinking about trying to get memorized some really easy songs I can fingerpick and sing that others can pick or strum along with and sing. Iíve done Railroad Bill and Donít Think Twice with variable success. Some others Iíve thought of are House of the Rising Sun and Midnight Special. I figured I can find some easy versions of those and either play simple arpeggios (the former) or simple Travis patterns (the latter). Other suggestions are welcome and bonus points for videos or tabs showing simpler arrangements.

I'm just learning fingerstyle, and love Green Green Rocky Road - Dave VanRonk:
