Quiz: Do you actually know the lyrics to 'The Star-Spangled Banner'?


Do you actually know the lyrics to "The Star-Spangled Banner"?
By the way, there's more than one verse.
Take the quiz!

If you've lived most of your life in the United States, I'm going to assume that you know at least the opening line to "The Star-Spangled Banner." If you took history class in our country, you might remember that it was written by Francis Scott Key. And if you're from Maryland like I am, you'll never forget that he wrote it in Baltimore.

However, no one ever told me that there are four stanzas in the poem. Somehow this was totally left out of my education. Did you know this? Does anyone actually know all of the lyrics? Take the quiz to test your knowledge!
