Relationship beetwen chords will also help. Lets say you play a C chord. Then play a G7. You will notice that the G7 asks for a resolution that comes if you play C again. For now, say C is the tonic and G7 the dominant. There's hundreds of songs only with these two chords in popular music.
Then try to learn the same relationship you have for C as the tonic, with A,G,E,and D.
Also learn minor chords, specially Am, Em and Dm that are the easiest.
If you play an Am followed by an E7, you have the same tonic-dominant relationship.
Then try G-C-G-D7. In this sequence, C is the subdominant.
Its more important to know how chords relate to each others than having an huge vocabulary in every key.
With these relationships, you can play thousands (and i mean thousands) of songs.
