GE    .C    E      G     C
Oh, say can you see
^(E   D     C)       E-F#     G
By the dawns early light
G          G   ^(E-D      C)      B
What so proudly we hailed
A     B     C  -  C        G       E  -  .C
At the twilights last gleaming?


E            G           .C          E          G          C
Who's broad striped and bright stars
^(E             D      C)-E-F#     G
Through the perilous fight
G          G    ^(E-D       C)      B
O'er the ramparts we watched
A           B     C^-C^-G     E-.C
Were so gallantly streaming?


^(E      E     E-F        G       G)
And the rocket's red glare!
^(F       E           D-E      F     F)
The bombs bursting in air!
^(F         E           D          C)      B
Gave proof through the night
A          B     C^    E      F#      G
That our flag was still there


G        C^   C^   CB     A      A-A      ^(D-FE    DE)    CB
Oh, say does that star spangled banner yet wave
G        G    ^(CD  E   F#   G)
O'er the land of the free
^(C     E      E        F    D      C)
And the home of the brave?
