The Star Spangled Banner

Do you know all four verses of our national Anthem?

jgf over at It's a Dog's Life has them. If you haven't memorized all four of them it's a good idea. The first verse (which many Americans do know) makes more sense if you know the other three.

Heck, I don't even know my own national anthem, they've changed it to many times, but I do know the first verse of yours, and have read the rest. Someday I'll have to memorize it.

ABF- Isn't it "Oh Ca-na-daaaa, my cold and Northern home..."

I used to know all four verses, Shoprat, but have long since forgotten the latter three and only maintained the first verse 'cause that's all they ever sing.

But I've already been to JGF's blog and saw them posted there. It's a beautiful song and just about says it all, doesn't it.

I hope you don't mind if I address Tim: Tim, it's not always cold in Alberta where Abfreedom lives. They have absolutely gorgeous and warm summers. :)

Thanks Shoprat! I consider this one of the things I should know out of principle. I'm going to try and memorize it.
