I was frustrated with the quality of tabs for this song that I found.  All were pretty close but not quite 
correct.  I listened to the song and had trouble figuring out the progression since Aaron Lewis plays in 
Eb tuning.  I found a version of him playing the song live on YouTube and used it to make this tab.

Granddaddy's Gun by Aaron Lewis (Eb tuning)

INTRO: G   Cadd9   G   Cadd9

VERSE:
G                             
It sits above the mantle on a couple rusty nails 
         Cadd9
it ain’t worth a lot of money and it damn sure ain’t for sale.
    D                                Cadd9                              G
The good lord only knows the all the stories it could tell granddaddy’s gun.
G                                    
He bought it new out of the Sears and Roebuck catalog
        Cadd9                         
and it shot a many shell over the back of an ol’ bird dog.
   D                                  Cadd9                            G
It backed a burglar down when grandma took the safety off granddaddy’s gun 

CHORUS:
  Cadd9                G              D                      Em
It's just an old double barrel 12 the stock is cracked and it kicks like hell
    Cadd9                  G                D
it wouldn't mean what it means to me to no one.
      Cadd9                       G                        D        
I can still hear his voice when I put it to my shoulder "a guns like a woman 
         Em                     Cadd9                 G                D
son its all how ya hold her" he taught me a whole lot more than how to hunt
    Cadd9                  G                D                     G        
and one of these days I'll pass it on to my grandson granddaddy’s gun

MELODY: G   Cadd9   G   Cadd9

VERSE:
G                               
He handed it to me on the day I turned thirteen, 
       Cadd9   
with a half shot box of shells and a kit to keep it clean.
  D                                  Cadd9                             G
I keep a picture in the case of that sweet old man and me, granddaddy’s gun


CHORUS:
   Cadd9                G             D                       Em
It's just an old double barrel 12 the stock is cracked and it kicks like hell
   Cadd9                  G                D
it wouldn't mean what it means to me to no one.
      Cadd9                       G                        D        
I can still hear his voice when I put it to my shoulder "a guns like a woman 
        Em                       Cadd9                G                D
son its all how ya hold her" he taught me a whole lot more than how to hunt
    Cadd9                  G                D                     
and one of these days I'll pass it on to my grandson granddaddy’s gun

SOLO: Cadd9   G   D   Cadd9   G   D

BRIDGE:
          Cadd9                     G                     D           
There's a long beard hangin' on the living room wall that I got with a box call and 
Cadd9        G         D
granddaddy’s guuuuuuuuuun. 
Cadd9                                G       D
There's a beat up stop sign there on 49 that me and Billy Joe shot up one night with 
Cadd9        G           D         Cadd9    G    D
granddaddy’s guuuuuuuuuuun.

OUTRO:
G                                                       
It sits above the mantle on a couple rusty nails 
         Cadd9                           
It ain’t worth a lot of money and it damn sure ain’t for sale

This one is correct as long as

G = G5 = 3x0033
Cadd9 = Csus2 = x3x033
D = xx0232
Em = Em7 = 022033

At least that's how Aaron plays it.
