that is a simple chord progression. it is used in many songs. just about any song using that format can be transposed to those exact chords. for example, I play "Wild Thing" in E. the chords progression then would be E A B E. simple to change to A D E A.

I guess the chorus to "Lay Down Sally" fits nicely into that thought!

A, D, E is a I, IV, V progression.

I would think that there are literally hundreds of thousands of songs that use it. I hope you have a good database software and a big disk.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
