New York Dolls - Looking For A Kiss tab

Artist: New York Dolls
Album: New York Dolls
Song: Looking For A Kiss

Here's the second track to the New York Dolls first album from 1973.
The lead part is pretty straightforward and easy. Johnny Thunders
is the lead guitarist and Sylvain Sylvain pops out chords throughout
this song. Remember when you hit the E after the G to do some sus4
switches, which is Sylvain's trademark. Well here's the tab..

Intro

   G               E
e|--------------|---------------------|
B|--------------|---------------------|
G|--------------|--13--14-13--14--13--| (2 times before lead comes in)

A|--5--5--5--5--|--14--14-14--14--14--|
E|--3--3--3--3--|--12--12-12--12--12--|

D|----------------|---------------|----------------|----------------|
A|----------------|---------------|----------------|----------------|
E|--/12-----------|---------------|----------------|----------------|

for the verse just play the intro chords over and over
but for the lead, make sure you don't hit the 12th fretted
note, cause that was only for entering the song.

  well, you know I can't be wasting time....

for the rhythm, just play it as barre chords but play the
E open position and do blues style fingering.

Here are the other riffs he plays when he gets to that
