"Waiting on a Friend"

Jagger/Richards



|C    |F    |C    |F     ;(intro; repeat to taste)

                         (don't forget to play only the C bass note)

                         (for the first beat of the first/third meas.)



|Am                     |F            |G                         |C

   Watchin' girls go passing by         It ain't the latest thing



|G            |            |C           |

I'm just standin' in a doorway



|G            |                   |C          |

I'm just trying to make some sense



  $

  |Am                           |F       |G                      |C

1. Out of these girls        passing by, the tales they tell of men



|G          |         |C          |

I'm not waiting on a lady                    



|G          |               |C       |  (return to $ for second verse)

I'm just waiting on a friend



2. A smile relieves a heart that grieves,

   remember what I said.

   I'm not waiting on a lady,

   I'm just waiting on a friend.



(after second verse, this bridge:)



              |C        |F                  |C

... on a friend       I'm just waiting on a friend



|F                 |C               |F                  |C

 just waiting on a friend.        I'm just waiting on a friend,



    |F                |C        |F                 |C    

I'm just waiting on a friend,     just waiting on a friend



(instrumental for 16 bars, just alternating F and C, one measure each, and 

soloing away, then return to "$" for the last two verses)





3. Don't need a whore, don't need now booze,

   don't need a virgin priest.

   But I need some one I can cry to,

   I need someone to protect.



4.  Ooh, making love and breaking hearts,

    It is a game for youth.

    But I'm not waiting on a lady,

    I'm just waiting on a friend.



(repeat bridge, fade instrumental...)



This song is excellent fun to play... hope the notation is not too cryptic.

Don't forget to emphasize the "C" bass note in the intro and bridge...



Here's another hint to help you get that strummed melody at the

beginning:



         C(add9)  Dm Fmaj7

e--------------------0---

B-------3-3-3-3---3--1---

G-------0-0-0-0---2--2---

D-------2-2-2-2---3--3---

A-2h3---3-3-3-3------3---

E------------------------

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:

Csus2 (x4)  Dm F {repeat, with "doo doo" vocals, piano solo}



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



Csus2  Dm F {repeat, sax solo followed by ad lib-ish "doo doo"}

(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



Csus2  Dm F {repeat, more sax solo followed by ad lib "doo doo"}

(just waitin on a friend)

I don't know the whole song, but I know some bits. Here's the 

opening:



  C(add9)  F

--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(Add9) C 

--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 :)
