   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.
