*pre-comment note*: All of Staind's and Aaron lewis' songs are played with the instruments tuned 1/2 step down (Eb for guitar) to accommodate Aaron's vocal range.  Then chords can be played with regular fingering.  So I have transposed this song +2 semitones to the key of "A".   

I think that the "A" chord is incorrect. I believe that all "A" chords should be played as"Am". Possibly even with an occasional "A6" seeing as it seems to be one of Aaron's favorite chords.
