If you want to sing more than just verse one, see the lyrics for all four verses of The Star-Spangled Banner as a downloadable PDF further down this page. 

I plan to put up piano accompaniments for the national anthem as well; for now, I hope the chord symbols help.


And since I started playing cello, I decided that lead sheets for the bass clef are in order.  Scroll down the page for the free links:
