Star Spangled Banner - key of C

C                                          Am             D7   G
Oh say can you see by the dawn's early     light

               C                 G                   C
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming

C                                                                                Am     D7   G
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the peri - lous fight

               C                   G                           C                     
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming

              C                  G                          Dm             F
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air

         C                            G                     Am          D7  G
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there

     C                       F                      Dm             Gsus  G 
Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet wa  -  ave

               C                                               F  G    C
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave
