[Verse 1]

A                                                          
I fell asleep on the couch last night, woke up with the TV on
A
There was a woman in tight cotton exercise shorts
A
And a big plastic machine she was climbing on
A
She said "The Aba-cycle guarantees ten inches off your waist
A                                  D
And 50 pounds in just 3 minutes a day."
          A
I went to bed knowing the revolution had been postponed
    D               E7   A
And everything was okay


[Chorus]

        A               D       A
You can try it, you can buy it, it'll help you in bed
             E7                          A
But don't be fooled folks, there's only one
      A             D                A
I forget the guy's name but I know somebody said
A            E7         A    D    A            E7        A
Sell it and they will come boys, sell it and they will come


[Verse 2]

A                                                                         
I switched the channels and there was Evel Knievel 
A
I thought that he was dead
A
I found myself sitting there quietly, hanging on every word he said
A
"Now folks, the stimulator removes all pain from your life.
A
And the best day of your life will be when you try this little device out."
A
The camera moved in as he said, "Now, let me tell you ladies and gentlemen,
A
Pain is something old Evel knows a little about"


[Chorus]

        A               D       A
You can buy it, you can try it, go right ahead
            E7                          A
But don't be fooled folks, there's only one.
      A             D               A
I forget the guy's name but i know somebody said
A           E7         A    D     A           E7         A
Sell it and they will come boys, sell it and they will come


[Verse 3]

A
And a fellow comes on shouting "Free haircuts for life!"
A
Somehow you cut your hair with a vacuum cleaner
A
And then I switched the channels and there was Dionne Warwick 
A
Communing with her psychic friends
A
I watched for hours, taking warmth, comfort, and pleasure
A                        D
In the things that I despise
A
Touched by how much they needed me
         D           E7               A
And that happy desperation in their eyes


[Chorus]


        A               D              A
You can buy it, you can try it, it'll help you in bed.
             E7                          A
But don't be fooled folks, there's only one.
      A             D               A
I forget the guy's name but i know somebody said
A           E7         A    D     A           E7         A
Sell it and they will come boys, sell it and they will come


[Verse 4]

A                                                                D
So, to Dionne, Cher, and all my late-night friends, I drink to your health
A
And Tony Little, America's personal trainer, please kill yourself
A
Now I've sold a few things myself in my time, and by the way folks,
A                                     D
There's some t-shirts on your way outside
A
Well, last night I dreamed of lipstick and tight little cotton shorts
A
"Harder, faster", she whispered in my ear.
A
"One, two, three, four, five"
A      E7    A     D     A    E7    A
Ride, sally ride, girl, ride sally ride.


[Chorus]

        A               D              A
You can buy it, you can try it, it'll help you in bed.
             E7                          A
But don't be fooled folks, there's only one
      A             D               A
I forget the guy's name but i know somebody said
A           E7         A    D     A           E7        A
Sell it and they will come boys, sell it and they will come

About the artist behind Sell It And They Will Come Chords:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
