Modern Lyrics:

 

Oh tell me please, can you see what we're looking for in the light of the dawn?
The flag we were watching by the last light of yesterday,
With its broad stripes and bright stars, that through all the danger of the battle
We could still see over the walls of the fort, waving so gallantly in the breeze,
 

And all through the night, the rockets and the bombs lighting up the sky
Told us what we needed to know - that our flag was still flying there.
But please, oh please tell me, is the star spangled banner the one that still waves,
Over the land of the free, and the home of the brave?
