For a fully acoustic song I'd say either Patients by GN'R but you have to tune down half a tone or Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd

Personally, my favorite fully acoustic song is Bron-Yr-Aur, not to be confused with Bron-Y-Aur Stomp. Having that play when I'm driving throught the country side, I could die a happy man. Wish You Were Here I like as well as White Summer. I'm trying to think of songs completely acoustic because tons of songs contain both acoustic and electric. In that case it would have to Stairway and every Zeppelin song for that matter, and for some reason Maggie May. Don't really know why.

Bron-Yr-Aur is so beautiful - one of the most relaxing songs ever.

Apart from that, I'd go with either Mood for a Day or Clap, both written by the great Steve Howe of Yes.

I like a lot of the material from The Grateful Dead's American Beauty, which consists of a lot of acoustic pieces, such as my favorite (from that album), "Friend of the Devil".

Also, I like Fearless by Pink Floyd a lot.

Bob Dylan's folk material is great.
Actually pretty much any classic folk rock would be great. That would consist of:
Gordon Lightfoot
Joni Mitchell
CSNY, or CSN
Neil Young
Bruce Cockburn
Simon & Garfunkel
Leonard Cohen
Buffalo Springfield
etc etc.......

Laziness is what defines us from animals (including pigs on the wing)
The ability to think in straight lines as compared to curving and even circular lines is what defines animals from us (EDIT in that animals can sense things before they happen [we can too it's called de-jah-voo] meaning that they think faster than us)
