Acoustic rock songs please!

I've been playing the guitar for about four years now and I'm always looking for good songs to learn....I LOVE acoustic but I also play electric when I feel like it. I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions of good acoustic rock songs that I should learn. The acoustic Incubus stuff is great and so is Dashboard (of course their tuning is a PAIN to use) but if anyone has a particular acoustic rock song they like, list it and I'll try to learn it. I get a huge brain fart when it comes to thinking of songs I should learn. I sit here and stare at the computer screen trying to think of songs and just can't do it. BTW here is a pic of all my instruments except one which I am putting in a separate post a little later since it has the coolest paint job ever. Clicky: http://www.villagephotos.com/viewpub...elected=918163 If you noticed, I also play Mandolin and Banjo(banjo's hard ). Thanks, Later <><

I always liked the intro to Pink Floyd's "wish you were here" Led Zepps "Tangerine" and a lot of the Allman Brothers stuff.

To me, Johnny Cash made the best version of this song, and it's just him and his acoustic guitar. It was one of my top 5 songs last year.
