If you are a member of your local board of Realtors, they should be able to provide such a document. However, in many cases the document will be "locked" so that you can only filll in the blanks. This prevents real estate agents from getting "creative" to the point where they are practicing law. Some boards also prohibit their members from providing blank forms to non-members. If you aren't a board member some state licensing agencies also have forms available.....assuming you are licensed.
If you are not a licensed agent, you should speak with your attorney and get him or her to provide a suitable document. I've seen many landlords try to modify an old lease form to avoid hiring an attorney or real estate broker only to create much bigger and more expensive problems for themselves down the line. Many times a change in one lease paragraph will create a contradiction elsewhere in the document and since you are making the changes the court is likely to rule against you if there is any future dispute over the language of the document.

It makes sense to work with a blank commercial lease form. Just be careful. In Massachusetts commercial real estate, we find that no one lease fits all and that each deal is unique unto itself. It may not be what you want to hear, but consider hiring an attorney to generate a boilerplate document for you that you can modify and have him/her review to make sure you're adequately protected.
