Star Spangled Banner


h1 July 1st, 2000

One of the hardest songs in the world to sing!
Lyrics:
[C] Oh say can you see by the dawn's early [G] light
What so [C] proudly we [G] hailed at the [F] twilight's last [C] gleaming
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous [G] fight
O'er the [C] ramparts we [G] watched were so [F] gallantly [C] streaming

And the rockets' red [Am] glare the bombs [G] bursting in air
Gave [C] proof through the [G] night that our [F] flag was still [G] there
O [C] say does that [F] star – spangled [Dm] banner yet [C]wa- [G]ve
O'er the [C] land of the free and the home [G] of the [C] brave

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes
What is that which the breeze o'er the towering steep
As it fitfully blows now conceals, now discloses

Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam
N' full glory reflected now shines on the stream
'Tis the star spangled banner O long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wiped out their foul footstep's pollution

No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave
And the star spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave
