My new landlord wants me to give him a lease for us to sign. Is there a good resource for printable lease agreements?

My new landlord says he doesn't normally do leases; he's willing to sign a lease if I provide it. I'm OK with this, but I don't really know what I'm doing. Is there a good resource for lease agreements? I've found places like this
and although they do provide leases that look official, I have no way of verifying their reputability.
If I were competent to evaluate the goodness of the lease I'd just write it up myself. I'm not, but I don't think I need to hire a lawyer for this. I've signed leases without getting a lawyer involved before.
There's probably a good trustworthy site for these kinds of documents out there, right? There has to be some middle ground between "hire a lawyer" and "law-f0rms-4-u-dot-biz," does there not? I also wouldn't be opposed to paying a few dollars if I was sure the lease was good.
I'm in North Carolina, if that helps any.
