  G       D   Em   B7     Em        A7 D
O say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
D7      G          D7            G
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
            G           D      Em    B7          Em  A7   D
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
D7       G           D7               G
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
        G                             D           D7
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
     G                 D              Em       A7    D
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
D7 G             C        E7   Am C   Am  G5 D
O  say does that star-spangled banner yet wa-ve
D7       G              G             G       D   G
O'er the land of the freeeeee and the home of the brave?

Great job! What you have is great. If you don't mind, I have a few suggestions that I think enhance this tab a bit.

For ...twilight's last gleaming, try open G, open G, D, barred G, barred G (both at the 3rd fret), then back to open G for "whose broad stripe's and..."

Also, for "gallantly streaming", try gal(G) lant(G) ly(D) stream(barred G) ing(barred G, both at 3rd fret again). Back to open G for "and the rock", D for "ets", then barred G for "red glare", then back to open G for "the bombs".

See what you think...

One more addition..."freeeeeee" sounds better to me with a 3rd fret barred G as well.
