This song is actually picked in a particular pattern - and after listening to the song
for ages, and pulling up the submitted tabs (all of which I can see apart from the 
Guitar Pro version) they fell short in giving a true rendition of the song as it's 
played on the record.

So here goes what I've sorted after spending some time parsing it out by ear, and broken
into sections which I'll label against the verses below:

Intro:

Pt.1 & 2 played in succession twice...

Pt.1
e|-----2--------0--------3-----3-3---------|
B|--------3--------1----0-1r0--0-0---------|
G|---------------------0--0----0-0---------|
D|-----------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------|
E|--3--------3--------3------3-------------|


Pt.2

G|----2----2----0---0----0----0-0-0--00----|

Backstreet Girl by The Rolling Stones 
(originally released on the UK LP: Between the Buttons, in the US on Flowers)
Tab by: Dave Johnson

(pt. 1)
I don't want you to be high
(pt. 2)
I don't want you to be down
(1)
Don't want to tell you no lies
(2)
Just want you to be around

(pt. 3)
Please come right up to my ears

You will be able to hear what I say

(1)
Don't want you out in my world
(2)
Just you be my backstreet girl

(1 & 2)

(1)
Please don't be part of my life
(2)
Please keep yourself to your self
(1)
Please don't you bother my wife
(2)
That way you won't get no help

(3)
Don't try to ride on my horse

You're rather common and coarse any way

(1)
Don't want you out in my world
(2)
Just you be my backstreet girl

Instrumental: (1 & 2) played twice, then (3), then one last (1 & 2)

(1)
Please don't you call me at home
(2)
Please don't come knocking at night
(1)
Please never ring on the phone
(2)
Your manners are never quite right


(3)
Please take the favors I grant

Curtsy and look nonchalant just for me

(1)
Don't want you part of my world
(2)
Just you be my backstreet girl

(1)

(2)
Just you be my backstreet giirrrll...

Well I'd like to Edit this if I can, but not sure how...

Just noticed that the end of pt 1&2 where a 1 (F) is shown on the 1st string, it should be a 3 (G). Also toward the end of pt 3 - just before the D chord is played, the same issue occurred.

My apologies!

UPDATE:
