Miranda Lambert varies the way she picks each chord. That will take a little 
improv or you could play
 just the chords, or follow the basic style that each finger picking section is based 
off of which I have
 tabbed right here. Make sure you use the chords the way they are written here because 
the low E string is now a D.

[Verse 1]

             D                        F#m
I know they say you can't go home again

I just had to come back one last time
G
Ma'am, I know you don't know me from Adam
            D                                   A
But these hand prints on the front steps are mine
            D
Up those stairs in that little back bedroom
            F#m
Is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar
       G
And I bet you didn't know under that live oak
       D                          A
My favorite dog is buried in the yard
     G                                     D
I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
    Em                                    D
This brokenness inside me might start healing
     G
Out here it's like I'm someone else


[Chorus]

  Bm                                  G
I thought that maybe I could find myself
   D                                    G
If I could just come in, I swear I'll leave
                            D
Won't take nothing but a memory
          A               D
From the house that built me


[Verse 2]

      D
Mama cut out pictures of houses for years
   F#m
From "Better Homes and Garden" magazines
            G
Plans were drawn and concrete poured

And nail by nail and board by board
D                          A
Daddy gave life to mama's dream


[Chorus]

   G                                      D
I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
      Em                                  D
This brokenness inside me might start healing
     G
Out here it's like I'm someone else
  Bm                                 G
I thought that maybe I could find myself
  D                                   G
If I could just come in, I swear I'll leave
                              D
Won't take nothing but a memory
           A              D
From the house that built me


[Bridge]

     Bm
You leave home, you move on
       D
And you do the best you can
Em
I got lost in this whole world
    G             A
And forgot who I am


[Chorus]

 G                                       D
I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
     Em                               D
This brokenness inside me might start healing
     G
Out here it's like I'm someone else
Bm                                 G
I thought that maybe I could find myself
 D                                     G
If I could walk around, I swear I'll leave
                           D
Won't take nothing but a memory
          A                D
From the house that built me

Most of the fingerpicking is PERFECT, I just have a couple of minor changes for the last two lines:

D|-----2----------2---------0-----------0-------0----------0------0-------0--|
A|--0---------0--------------------------------------------------------------|
