Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
So, one of my friends played this song at an Open Mic, and after looking it
up, I realized there's no charts for it anywhere online, and its actually 
pretty hard to find in general. Sufjan was making quite a statement when he 
first played this song; look it up, its pretty funny. Simple but powerful 
song. E Standard Tuning; no capo.

Intro: C  G  Em A (2x)

C      G           Em  A   C         G           Em    A
  Oh, say can you see,       by the dawns early light,
C            G         Em    A   C          G              Em      A
  What so proudly we hailed       at the twilights last gleaming?

(I play half the intro here)

C                G                Em    A   C              G        Em    A
  Whose broad stripes and bright stars,       through the perilous fight,
C          G           Em      A      C          G           Em       A
  Oer the ramparts we watched, oh-oh    were so gallantly streaming?

Pre-Chorus:
C           G            Em            A            C
   And the rockets red glare, and the bombs in the air,
          G                Em              A              C
Gave us proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Chorus: (I think all the lyrics here are right)
          G                Em              A           C
And the flag marked with blood, with the blood of our hands
         G                 Em               A         C
And our hands marked with death, with the blood of a man
       G           Em             A           C
And a man on the cross, and the cross on our hearts
        G            Em             A         C
Has it done nothing more, than to drive us apart?

Pre-Chorus:
C           G            Em            A            C
   And the rockets red glare, and the bombs in the air,
          G                Em              A              C
Gave us proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Chorus:
          G                Em              A           C
And the flag marked with blood, with the blood of our hands
         G                 Em               A         C
And our hands marked with death, with the blood of a man
       G           Em             A           C
And a man on the cross, and the cross on our hearts
        G            Em             A         C
Has it done nothing more, than to drive us apart?

Outro:
C    G              Em       A             C                      
  O say, does that star (oh say does that star)
          G          Em             A          C
Spangled banner yet wave (spangled banner yet wave)
           G            Em           A            C                
  Oer the land of the free (oer the land of the free)
         G            Em             A 
And the home of the brave? (and the home of the brave?)

(Fade out on same chord progression)
