      It’s a chromatic alteration to the key, (a pair of ii/V/Is), nothing about the melody is chromatic. It simply follows the changes. Of course where keys go, scales follow...

        Dude, I hate to break it to you, but if you can read / understand the OP, then yes, you’re definitely a music dork.

        Embrace your bad dorky self. These is no shame in knowing music theory!

        And it really wouldn’t be a music theory discussion if there wasn’t some debate involved, now would it?

            This is a song many Americans know well, and some make a fuss over:
            The Star-Spangled Banner


            O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
            What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
            Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
            O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
            And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
            Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
            O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
            O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

            On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep
            Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
            What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
            As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
            Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
            In full glory reflected now shines in the stream,
            ’Tis the star-spangled banner - O long may it wave
            O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

            And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
            That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
            A home and a Country should leave us no more?
            Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
            No refuge could save the hireling and slave
            From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
            And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
            O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

            O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
            Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!
            Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land
            Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
            Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
            And this be our motto - “In God is our trust,”
            And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
            O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.


            Unfortunately, I can't hear it and keep a straight face. I know the original lyrics to that tune.

            1 To Anacreon in Heav'n, where he sat in full Glee,
            A few Sons of Harmony sent a Petition,
            That he their Inspirer and Patron would be;
            When this answer arriv'd from the Jolly Old Grecian
            "Voice, Fiddle, and Flute, "no longer be mute,
            "I'll lend you my Name and inspire you to boot,
            "And, besides I'll instruct you, like me, to entwine
            "The Myrtle of Venus with Bacchus's Vine."

            2 The news through Olympus immediately flew;
            When Old Thunder pretended to give himself Airs.
            "If these Mortals are suffer'd their Scheme to persue,
            "The Devil a Goddess will stay above Stairs.
            "Hark! already they cry, "In transports of Joy,
            "Away to the Sons of Anacreon we'll fly,[29]
            "And there, with good Fellows, we'll learn to intwine
            "The Myrtle of Venus with Bacchus's Vine.

            3 "The Yellow-Hair'd God and his nine fusty Maids,
            "From Helicon's banks will incontinent flee,[30]
            "Idalia will boast but of tenantless Shades,
            "And the bi-forked Hill a mere Desart will be
            "My Thunder no fear on't, "Shall soon do it's Errand,
            "And dam'me! I'll swinge the Ringleaders, I warrant.
            "I'll trim the young Dogs, for thus daring to twine
            "The Myrtle of Venus with Bacchus's Vine."

            4 Apollo rose up, and said, "Pry'thee ne'er quarrel,
            "Good King of the Gods, with my Vot'ries below:
            "Your Thunder is useless"—then shewing his Laurel,
            Cry'd "Sic evitabile fulmen,[31] you know!
            "Then over each head "My Laurels I'll spread;
            "So my Sons from your Crackers no Mischief shall dread,
            "Whilst snug in their Club-Room, they jovially twine
            "The Myrtle of Venus with Bacchus's Vine."

            5 Next Momus got up with his risible Phiz,
            And swore with Apollo he'd chearfully join—
            "The full Tide of Harmony still shall be his,
            "But the Song, and the Catch, and the Laugh shall be mine.
            "Then, Jove, be not jealous "Of these honest fellows.
            " Cry'd Jove, "We relent, since the Truth you now tell us;
            "And swear by Old Styx, that they long shall intwine
            "The Myrtle of Venus with Bacchus's Vine."

            6 Ye Sons of Anacreon, then join Hand in Hand;
            Preserve Unanimity, Friendship, and Love! '
            Tis your's to support what's so happily plann'd;
            You've the sanction of Gods, and the Fiat of Jove.
            While thus we agree, Our Toast let it be. May our Club
            flourish happy, united, and free!
            And long may the Sons of Anacreon entwine
            The Myrtle of Venus with Bacchus's Vine.



            Downright scandalous, but much more fun.
            Let's see Trump scorn people who kneel
            for that version of the song.
