You Tube is also a good place to find folk songs. As Howard Jones said above, not every song is there, but there's an awful lot and much of it by quality performers.
Can I also suggest that it is worth the effort of both learning to play an instrument and learning to read music. It makes versions of songs from books much more accessible. I regularly use printed sources for learning songs.
Finally as CS posted some Byrd earlier - lovely, thank you CS. Here is some Dowland with a thoughtful song for 2 in the morning (which it is about now.)
Of course it's not folk, but Emma Kirkby is such a lovely singer and it is such a gorgeous song that I had to share it with you.
