The first two chords are the Csus2 and a Dm that sneaks in
for one strum before the F.
Hope this helps.

Waiting on a Friend (Jagger/Richards)
gleaned from the album "Tattoo You" by The Rolling Stones (1981):
Intro:
 AmFGC
                                     Watchin girls a-passin' by   It ain't the latest thing
 GCGC
                                     I'm just standin' in a doorway  I'm just tryin' to make some sense
 AmFGC
                                      out of these girls a-passin' by...the tales they tell of men
 GCGC
                                     I'm not waitin' on a lady       I'm just waiting on a friend
 AmFGC
                                      A smile relieves the heart that bleeds     remember what I said
 GCGC
                                     I'm not waitin' on a lady   I'm just waiting on a friend
(repeat "I'm just waiting on a friend" on F)
 AmFGC
                                      Don't need a whore I don't need no booze - don't need a virgin priest
 GCGC
                                     But I need someone I can cry to    I need someone to protect
 AmFGC
                                     Makin love and breakin hearts - it is a game for youth
 GCGC
                                     but I'm not waiting on a lady...I'm just waitin on a friend
(just waitin on a friend)

I don't know the whole song, but I know some bits. Here's the
opening:
 C(add9F
--0-0-0-0--1-----1--------
--3-3-3-3--1-----1--------
--0-0-0-0--2-----2--------
--2-2-2-2--3--x--3--3-----
--3-3-3-3-------------2-3-
--------------------------

8 times
(I haven't figured out the verse yet)
This part is in the bridge, after "I'm just standing in a doorway", and
after "I'm just trying to make some sense":
 C(Add9C
--0-0-0---0-
--3-3-3---1-
--0-0-0---0-
--2-2-2---2-
--3-3-3---3-
------------

I hope this is a good start. I play along with the tape, and it sounds
accurate.....maybe with a couple transfusions I could figure out the rest :)
