Well, here's some suggestions that are close. First suggestion is that I never, ever play tab. Not because there's anything wrong with tab, but because it is very difficult for me and I do this for fun rather than challange. If you have different motivations or different ideas of fun, just toss this suggestion out as well-meaning but not useful.
Drive On - by Johnny Cash. It uses D, G, A but you could substitute A7 for the A and see if you like it.
Were You Born an A**hole by Jimmy Buffett. Ditto the A7 for A substitution.
Distantly In Love by Jimmy Buffett (really Steve Goodman, but Jimmy recorded it). Ditto the A7 for A substitution. Call it jazz if anyone complains.
Peace Train by Cat Stevens, but simplify the arrangement by playing G for Bm. Really fast strumming song - lots of fun and challenging (to me anyway). I use a capo on the second fret but that's not necessary.
If you can learn to do an "E", add Bloody Mary Morning by Willie Nelson.
Once you have the "E", move it up one string to be an "Am" and you can add Last Dance With Mary Jane by Tom Petty. That requires a "hammer on" to sound right. Would be a good stretch goal song for you.
If D, G, and A7 are the only chords you know right now, in addition to trying a couple of songs, I'd recommend adding E to your repertoire of chords and you'll expand available songs a great deal.
Good luck, and have fun. You're on your way! What a better place to be, eh?
p.s. In case you didn't pick up on it, I don't really care about playing songs 'right.' Just play. If it puts a grin on your face, that's enough.
