I need simple songs for a beginning soprano singing student.

I have started taking private voice lessons and I need to choose a song to work on. I am a total beginner and have trouble hearing when I'm off and hitting the note right the first time (I tend to land wherever and then correct), so I'm looking for something really, really basic.
I would like to learn Kim Richey's A Place Called Home, but I can't find sheet music for it. I asked my instructor about singing Paul Simon songs and she said his lyrics tend to be too complicated and so they aren't great songs for beginners - but maybe something like Bridge Over Trouble Waters would work.
I'm not opposed to show tunes, but I was thinking more along the lines of folk, singer-songwriter, indie rock, mild country.
Would any of Adele's songs be appropriate for me? Or is her voice to low?
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
