The Star-Spangled Banner

Written by: Francis Scott Key

Oh say can you see, by the dawn's ear- ly light,
What so proud- ly we hailed at the twi- light's last gleam- ing,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the per- il- ous fight,
O'er the ram- parts we watched, were so gall- ant- ly stream- ing?
And the rock- ets red glare, the bombs burst- ing in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Oh say does that star- span- gled ban- ner yet wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
