Welcome to the Rep section. If you're looking for charts to Django tunes, you've come to the right place. Before posting, though, have a look at these sites; nine times out of ten you'll find what you're looking for at one or another:

http://djangopedia.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page (chord charts)
http://www.visi.com/~mpv/charts/ (lead sheets & chord charts)
http://www.ralphpatt.com/Song.html (chord charts)
http://emicad.altervista.org/ (chord charts, transcriptions)
http://nuagesdeswing.free.fr/jouer/jouer_index.html (chords & playalongs)
http://jazz.chansons.free.fr/guitarejazz2.htm (powertab)
http://hotclub.co.uk/ptab/powertab.html (powertab)
http://djangoinjune.com/For_musicians/getready.html (.zip file of lead sheets)
http://djangoinjune.com/For_musicians/g ... tunes.html (more lead sheets)
http://www.stephanewrembel.com/rhythmtracks.html (playalong tracks)
http://posglov.googlepages.com/tablatures (tabs & pdfs, sound examples)

That's just a basic list; there are dozens of other sites out there with great stuff on them. If you can't find what you're looking for, just ask, and I'll do my best to hunt down a chart for you. (You should also take a look at the Djangobooks Store for an amazing selection of books dealing with instruction and transcription.)

Beyond all that, I'm hoping we can use this section to discuss the specifics of arrangements-not just what chords to play, but how to play them, in what tempo, with what inversions, etc. My working theory is:
Knowing the chords isn't enough.

Post away!
Jack.
