    Default Song with just A minor and C?

    Other than Billie in the low ground(an instrumental), I cannot think of one. It would be so easy to teach.

    Is there a popular song with just these two chords?

    I can't think of any or find any. Quite a few with the tonic and dominant 7th chord though.

    yeah lots of childrens songs are simply F - c7(or a different variation as UkeJenny stated)
    which is not that much harder than c - am

    Change that to A7 instead of Am and you have the beginnings of a whole lot of blues songs. There have been many old timey blues songs played with just one chord, probably originally played on a "diddley bow." Here's a previous thread that may help. Pick 3 complimentary chords and you have a 12-bar blues progression going:

    Look up songs in the key of G, that'll narrow it down to a few million!

    I have no experience teaching ukulele and not that much teaching guitar, but that is what I used Billy in the Low ground for in the past. If I do give uke lessons, nothing could be faster and develop interest more than teaching a couple of one finger chords that enable a student to play a song. It is also great when showing how to improvise.

    What about "The Red Tail Hawk"? It's Am and G.

    I know tunes with Am and G ie Good old Rebel etc but I wanted to teach a someone a song with these two chords that can be done with one finger.

    I do not remember a Cash song with only these chords?
