Generally you take the chord progression of the song and play it on an acoustic guitar. And that's not as smartass of an answer as it sounds.

Oh ok, I thought they would completely re write the song just for acoustic. Thanks for the clear up.

Wouldn't really be the same song anymore then would it?
But I do think artists occasionally change the tempo, maybe even the time signature, mess about with it a bit.

You might want to try and get the melody in to. Using the chords and different voicings using spare fingers, you can fairly quickly start to sound like the real thing.
Dude, where's my band?
