The tuning is optional, as most Staind fanatics know, the majority of Staind
songs (at least acoustic) are played half a step down (and to be honest i
think this tuning osunds better than standard tuning) so i would advise
you to play it half a step down but if you have another tuning you preffer
this should sound just as nice in that tuning :)

The way I play and have tabbed this song is finger picked, personally I
think it sounds nicer like this but if you wish to play this song the way
Aaron does, play basically what i have tabbed but with a pik in a strum type
motion.

This is repeated throughout the entire song.

I sit here on the stairs and listen to
The night time as the daylight fades away
It's such a haunting and familiar tune
And when I hear it in the distance I can say
That I'm home
In Massachusettes
Where my daughters and my wife they wait for me
All alone
But the truth is
It's where I always am
It's where I long to be
Because I'm home
The north shore is where my father lives
And I wear my red socks around the world with pride
But the berkshires are where my heart is
And when I see them in the distance I could cry
Because I'm home
In Massachusettes
Where my daughters and my wife they wait for me
All alone
But the truth is
It's where I always am
It's where I long to be
Because I'm home
In Massachusettes
Where my hero teaches classes everyday
And where my friends
Don't treat me different
It's where my family lives
It's where I'll always stay
Because I'm home.

The A chord is not correct. The chord progression goes:
G D Em D C D then back to G, repeat. Picking can be figured out from this... (tune 1/2 step down)
