TAB

            Standard Tuning

(The following picking pattern is repeated until "the rockets' red glare", 
when the guitars kick in, but I included the chords anyway for those of 
you who want to play the whole song with them.)

1st string |------10-------12--14---| 
2nd string |--10--------------------|


  D                                   A
O say can you see by the dawn's early light,
               
        D          Bm            G               A
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
                    
            D                  Bm                G        A
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
           
         D           Bm               G         A
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
                               
                     D                            Bm
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

                       G                             A
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;

  D             Bm            G          A
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,

         D           A            Bm      A   D
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?


(Guitar solo)
 
                   D
Because we are the brave
 
               Bm
Yes we are the brave
  
            G
We’ll fight tyranny


In the name of the free
 
                   A
We are the U.S. of A

             D
For those unaware
 
                   Bm
That flag is still there

                   G
It’s our future to save
 
    
This land of the brave
 
            A
The U.S. of A

  D             Bm            G          A
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,

         D           A            Bm      A   D
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
