There isn't really one song, but you'll get a flavour from all of these:

Big Yellow Taxi - Joni Mitchell
Marrakesh Express - Crosby, Stills and Nash
San Francisco - Scott Mackenzie
Streets of London - Ralph McTell
Another Brick in the Wall - Pink Floyd (not really quite 60's)
She's leaving home - the Beatles
The Times they are a Changing - Dylan
Me and You and a Dog and a dog named Boo - Lobo
Yellow River - Christie
Me and Bobbie McGee - many artists

You can find all of these on Youtube - please tell me which is your favourite (if you have one).

I cut my teeth on "Streets of London" - Not sure I can even remember the words these days, and my "educated left hand" doesn't seem to want to do chord changes at the speed it used to - oh well - I can still fingerpick ok though :)
Janey commented
Nice to know ! That's why i switched to bass guitar.Two stings less and there isn't the same amount of chords required lol :)
