I STAY AWAY by Alice In Chains   Tab by Jill Valentine

I tabbed this out on a normal acoustic using standard tuning (but it also sounds great 
down 1/2 step)  The other tabs for this song were kinda weird sounding.  This is pretty 
accurate

INTRO
e]-0h2-2-2-0---3------------------------------
B]-3---3-3-3---3------------------------------
G]-2---2-2-2---5-----0-----0------------------
D]---------0-0-----2-----0-------0-----0-----0
A]---------0-0---3-----2-------2-----0-------0
E]---------0-0---------------5-----5-----5p4-0

Then the verses
e]-0h2-2-2-0---0---0-0-3----------------------------------
B]-3---3-3-3---3---3-3-3----------------------------------
G]-2---2-2-2---0---0-0-0---------0-----0------------------
D]-0-------0-0-2---2-2-2-------2-----0-------0-----0-----0
A]-0-------0-0-3---3-3-3-0-2-3-----2-------4-----0-------0
E]-0-------0-0---------------------------5-----5-----5p4-0

 Yeah          hey           yeah         want to travel south this year
  I            wo-           -ont         won't prevent safe passage here

This part sounds kinda wierd acoustically, but this is the closest I could come
e]-------------------------
B]-------------------------
G]-0h3p0-------------------
D]-------0h3p0-------------
A]-------------0h3p0-------
E]-------------------3p0-3b

  Why                    you act crazy
  Not                    an act maybe
  So                     close a lady
  Shif-                  -ty eyes shady

After this, you repeat the intro , then you do the next verse, identical to the first, 
but the first part is done only once

Hey, yeah tears that soak a careless heart

Then the second part of the verse is done to these lyrics

Why you act frightened 
I am enlightened
Your weakness builds me
So someday you'll see

Then the big powerful sounding chorus.  Play it this way. but listen to the song for the 
rhythm

e]-2-2-2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2-2-3-3-3-3-3-2---2-2-2-2-2-------------2
B]-3-3-3-3-3-3---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---3-3-3-3-3-3---3-3-3-5-3

D]-0-0-0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0-0-3---3-3-3-5-0
A]-------------------------------------------------1---1-1-1-3-0
E]-------------------------------------------------------------0
  I                        stay              away

I'm not exactly sure on the solo, but the rest is there.  If you have the solo, 
would appreciate it
