Yes. Here is a minimal example that should work provided that you have a bib file with the references you cite.
Run Latex, run bibtex, then run latex again a couple times.

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\begin{document}
\title{Sample bibliography}
\maketitle
\section{Introduction}
As shown by \cite{xyz} blah blah

\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{your_bib_file_name_here}

\end{document}
