  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# *
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/lake_street_dive/bad_self_portraits_crd.html ]
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
