D--6b7b6-4-4s6v

Intro: E B E B G#m F# &
Then this little riff on the D string (denoted by &). (Also at the end of every 4 
bars except when playing *). Note: This varies throughout the song, feel free to 
improvise.

D--6h7p6--

  E           B  
I bought this camera 
        E              B
to take pictures of my love
G#m           F#
Now that he's gone
                *
I don't have anybody to take pictures of
 E         B
Along some highway
   E              B
is pretty good subjects
G#m           F#            *    
I'm gonna make myself make use of this thing

(Not really necessary, but can play 5h6 on G string together with backup vocals 
for the part with no guitar)
I'm taking landscapes
I'm taking still lifes
           E        D#m           C#m
I'm taking bad self portraits
     F#
of a lonely woman

E B E B G#m F# *

E             B
I've spent my life
   E         B 
so lost on lovin'
G#m                     F#               &
I could have been a painter or a president
          E           B
But after twenty-five years 
            E             B
I should be good at something
G#m            F#                       &
Gone are the days of me being so innocent

I'm taking night classes
I'm making sculptures
             E         D#m        C#m
I'm painting bad self portraits
      F#
of a lonely woman

E B E B G#m F# &
E B E B G#m F# *

I bought this camera
to take pictures of my love
Now that he's gone 
I don't know what to do with this thing, well
B        D#             G#        F#
I don't care about the time or money
E                D#m            (mute)       
I just never thought that I'd be 
through with this love

Stuck taking landscapes
Stuck making still lifes
Stuck making sculptures
                    E        D#m        C#m
I'm out here taking bad self portraits
      F#
of a lonely woman
E         B        C#m       F#
Bad self portraits     of a lonely girl
E        D#m       C#m       F#
Sad self portraits     of a lonely woman

E B E B G#m F# x 2

Great job. I love this band if you know anymore of there stuff I'd be more than happy to see it. The riff on the last part of the main verses and intros is very confusing. I've found if you just play a standard E chord it's about the same. But anyway, great tab.
