In my Little Snapshot Album - George Formby

The song is featured in the film "I see ice" and this tab is based on
this version, which can be seen on youtube.
The outro solo is sometimes called the "practise piece". Some attempts are on youtube.

Original key Eb. (G. F. banjolele tuned Bb Eb G C.)

The tab is in C and has the same fingering used by G.F. but sounds 3 semitones lower.

Intro:

D7 G7 C G7 C

C                            G7               C
Now I'm a young inventor, a chap with good ideas,
G7                  C          D7                G7 
I've built myself a camera, it took me years and years.
       C                        F       G7    Am
It's a wonderful invention with special x-ray tricks,
       G                                   D7              G   G7   
It can take a picture in the dark and can even see through bricks.
  E7               Am        E7                Am
I bought myself an album and filled it up with snaps,
         G               G7              D7   ( A7   D7 ) G7  ( F G7 )
And I've got some lovely pictures of the local girls and  chaps.
 
Verse 1
                                                 
    C                          G7                          ( Dm  G7 ) C
Now I've got a picture of the girl next door, in my little snapshot   album,
    C                        G7                      ( Dm  G7 )  C
And I've never had a better snap before, in my little snapshot   album.
    Am                     Em   
The night was dark and the hour was late,
        F            G7        C  G7  C
She was kissing her boy by the garden gate,
Dm        A7   Dm  C7  F  E7   Am     D7            G7      C
Wouldn't she  love to see page eight, in my little snapshot album.
 
Verse 2
C                            G7                       ( Dm  G7 )  C
And I've got a picture of my old granddad, in my little snapshot  album.
C                      G7                       ( Dm  G7 )  C
He's over eighty but a real bad lad, in my little snapshot  album
    Am           Em   
Although he's an old antique,
   F            G7        C  G7  C
He thinks he's still the village sheik,
 Dm      A7   Dm  C7  F    E7 Am    D7           G7       C
I've got him dancing cheek to cheek in my little snapshot album.

 
Verse 3
    C                          G7                       ( Dm  G7 ) C
Now I've got a picture of the vicar's wife, in my little snapshot  album.
C                      G7                           ( Dm  G7 )  C
Chasing the Curate with a carving knife in my little snapshot   album.
    Am              Em   
Now what he did was all in fun
       F         G7      C     G7      C
But it's not the kind of thing that's done,
      Dm  A7 Dm      C7  F    E7   Am   D7           G7       C
I can see he pinched her hot-cross bun, in my little snapshot album.
 
Verse 4
C                           G7                       ( Dm  G7 ) C
And I've got a picture of a nudist camp, in my little snapshot album,
C                    G7                       ( Dm  G7 ) C
All very jolly but a trifle damp, in my little snapshot  album.
        Am             Em   
There's Uncle Dick without a care,
    F              C  G7  C
Discarding all his un-der-wear,
        Dm    A7   Dm   C7    F    E7 Am     D7           G7       C
But his watch and chain still dangles there, in my little snapshot album!
