Key Francis Scott – America The Brave lyrics

O, say, can you see?
By the dawn's early light?
What so proudly we hailed, at the twilights least gleaming.
Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
throught the perolous night,
o'are the rampardes we watched, were so gallently streaming.
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
gave proof through the night, that our flag was still there.
O, say, does the star spangled banner yet wave?
For the land of the free, and the home of the brave!
