Oh say can you see
By the dawn's early light
Was so proudly we hailed
At the twilight's last gleaming

Whose broad stripes and bright stars
Through the perilous light
For the ramparts we watched
Were so gallantly streaming

My country 'tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing
Land where my father's died
Land of the pilgrim's pride
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring

And the rocket's red glare
The bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night
That out flag was still there

Oh say does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free
And the home of the brave
