I like to play on guitar

Here you find some example song sheets.

There are also some common chord progressions and example how-tos and blank sheets.

Please note that these example chord sheets might be in a key different from the original song.
They most certainly are somehow modified, simplified or even incomplete.
Anyway they provide a good starting point for your own versions. Just copy and alter any of them as you like.
