The Star Spangled Banner Words: Francis Scott Key Tune: John Stafford Smith Category: Patriotic C G Am C D G 1. O say, can you see, by the dawn's ear-ly light, 2. O thus be it ev-er, when free men shall stand G C G Am G F G C G C 1. What so proud-ly we hailed at the twi-light's last gleam-ing, 2. Be -tween their loved homes and the war's des - o- la -tion; C G Am C D G 1. Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the per-il-ous fight, 2. Blest with vic-t'ry and peace, may the heav'n-res-cued land G C G C G Am G C 1. O'er the ram- parts we watched, were so gal-lant-ly stream-ing? 2. Praise the Pow'r that hath made and pre-served us a na-tion! C G G7 1. And the rock-ets' red glare, the bombs burst-ing in air, 2. Then con-quer we must, when our cause it is just; G7 C G C Em F C D G 1. Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. 2. And this be our mot -to: "In God is our trust!" G C G Am Dm C G 1. O say, does that star-span-gled ban-ner yet wa-ve 2. And the star -span-gled ban-ner in tri-umph shall wa-ve G C Am G C Dm G C 1. O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? 2. O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
