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):
[Am]                [F]             [G]       [C]Watchin girls a-passin' by   It ain't the latest thing
[G]                       [C]         [G]    [C]I'm just standin' in a doorway  I'm just tryin' to make some sense
[Am]                     [F]               [G] [C]out of these girls a-passin' by...the tales they tell of men
[G]                       [C]         [G]    [C]I'm not waitin' on a lady       I'm just waiting on a friend
[Am]                     [F]               [G] [C]A smile relieves the heart that bleeds     remember what I said
[G]                     [C]       [G]        [C]I'm not waitin' on a lady   I'm just waiting on a friend
(repeat "I'm just waiting on a friend" on F)
[Am]                     [F]               [G] [C]Don't need a whore I don't need no booze - don't need a virgin priest
[G]                         [C]          [G] [C]But I need someone I can cry to    I need someone to protect
[Am]               [F]                 [G]    [C]Makin love and breakin hearts - it is a game for youth
[G]                         [C]       [G]    [C]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
  [C(add9]         [F]                                                                                                                                                                                                    

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(Add9]        [C]                                                                                                                                                                                                     

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 :)
