    I first learned of the extra verses in the hymnal of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the fourth verse is the third verse in there).

    according to my sources, it even had an additional verse during the civil war:

    When our land is illumined with Liberty’s smile,If a foe from within strike a blow at her glory,Down, down with the traitor that dares to defileThe flag of her stars and the page of her story!By the millions unchained who our birthright have gained,We will keep her bright blazon forever unstained!And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall waveWhile the land of the free is the home of the brave.

    Key was an ad-man an wrote it a a jingle for Rumplemeyer’s Horseshoes:

    Rumplemeyer’s Horseshoes

    Are the best you can use

    What so proudly he nailed

    Onto all kinds of horses

    Whose broad backs and bright eyes

    As they smile in their stalls

    Give proof through the night

    That they wear Rumplemeyer’s

    Ask the horse who owns one

    He’ll say, "Son of a gun

    Rumplemeyer’s Horseshoes

    Are, by me, number one"

    That’s Rumplemeyer’s Horseshoes

    Spelled R-U-M-P-L-E-Meyer’s

    Twenty-seven Chestnut Street

    Ask for Harry or Dave

    Interesting fact: Most countries’ national anthems are about their country (for example O Canada), while the United States’ national anthem is one of a handful (5) that is about the flag. Sure, it talks about the land of the free and the brave, but it’s mostly about a flag surviving a battle. Other popular subjects of national anthems are about battles or people (like God Save the Queen).
