The guitar lick between the verses is played by scott gorham and he is using double stops on the high e and b string (i have seen this on a Thin Lizzy video)
Also if you want it exactly like the original play the opening phrase starting on the seventh fret on the low E string..
Also in the solo after the octave phrase you start with a bend on the 14 fret on the g-string and then play the double stop on the b-and hiogh e-string on the 12 fret

Cheers for the comment Guitarmaniac64 and sorry for the late reply lol

I havent watched any live vids ive just worked it out from listening to the cd but im sure there is a few ways of playing it like the first lick you could be lazy and just tap your little finger on the 10th fret of the B-string

and the second lick played like this -

|--12---10---8----7---------------------------|
|--13---12---10---8---------------------------|
|--12---12---9----7---------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------|

its just your preferance, i prefer to play it that way as thats the way ive worked it out plus it looks kinda cool :)

The opening phaze as in the bass line? i did originaly learn it they way you are talking about but i tabbed it like this because its easier for people to learn if its all in one place.

Whats funny is i actully play it with the bend on the 14th fret first but for some reason i forgot to tab it so thank you. ive updated it in now so it sould be on here soon :)

thank you for you comment.
