2nd fret
Standard tuning
Capo on 2nd fret

Corb Lund plays his chords "campfire style", so for a C chord
play C/G by fretting the low E string on the 3rd fret and for 
F (and similar shaped barre chords) don't play the low E string 
and only barre the two highest strings with the index finger.

(Notes in brackets ... only play bass note)

On the Am at the end of the third line in each verse, hammer on 
the 2nd fret of the D string to play it like Corb does  


C                   F          G
This is my prairie, this is my home
    C                            F             G
Well I'll make my stand here, and I'll die alone
         F                                C    (B)   Am
They can drill and they can mine o'er my smoldering bones
C                   G              C
This is my prairie, this is my home


C                       F                 C
The water is poison, my calves are all dead
   C                         F             G
My children're sick, and the aquifer's bled
     F                   C            (B)    Am
They want a big pipeline right through Pop's grove
C                   G              C
This is my prairie, this is my home

C                                F                C
I can't blame the riggers or the boys drivin truck
    C                        F           G
For feedin their families or makin a buck
    F                        C         (B)  Am
But take a close look at the stock that you own
      C                   G              C
Cause this is my prairie, this is my home

C                          F              C
I don't got the money that lawyers can buy
        C                       F              G
I don't got my own government's laws on my side
      F                          C      (B)    Am
But I got this old rifle that my granddaddy owned
C                   G              C
This is my prairie, this is my home

This is my prairie, this is my home

Well I'll make my stand here, and I'll die alone
         F                                C    (B)   Am

Just a few corrections and this tab is bang on!
First: At the end of the first line in every verse EXCEPT the first and last verses, the chord should go back to C, not G
Second: The first Am in the third line of every verse should be an F. Followed by C (B) and Am
