:There was a song, Waiting For A Friend, that first started getting kicked around in 1970 during the Sticky Fingers sessions. It didn't make it on that album and remained in the can until the sessions for Goat's Head Soup. It was reoworked a little but again not used. It resurfaced again in the Some Girls Sessions, only to be put away again. Finally, during the Tattoo You sessions, it was finsished and renamed Waiting On A Friend.
I really think this song started out in 1968, as Stuck Out All Alone, another unreleased boot. Yes the lyrics are completely different but the music is the same, especially the guitars. They might have done the same thing to SOAA as they did to Pay Your Dues which was recorded during the same sessions and became Street Fighting Man, same music - different lyrics.
