O   say can you see,  by the dawns ear-ly light,

  6   6   8     -8 7    -7   -6 -7   7    7     6     5   4
What so proud - ly we hailed at the twi-lights last gleaming,

 6      5      4      5    6      7       8    -8   7  5  -5    6
Whose, broad stripes and bright stars, through the per-il-ous fight,

  6   6   8   -8    7   -7     -6  -7  7    7  6   5     4
O'er the ram-parts we watched were so gal-lant-ly streaming?

 8   8    8   -9   9    9    -9   8     -8    8  -9 -9
And the rock-ets' red glare, the bombs burst-ing in air,

 -9    8     -8     7   -7    -6  -7   7    5   -5     6
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

O   say dose that star-span-gled ban-ner   yet   wave

  6   6   7  -8  8 -9    9   7  -8   8   -9 -8   7
O'er the land   of the free and the home of the brave?
