National Anthems

Advance Australia Fair
God Save the Queen
this is not a very good web page, the info on the order of the writing of the verses is not correct, but it was the best I could find with music and text.
another version
God Defend New Zealand
The Star Spangled Banner

Folk and Other Patriotic Songs

America the Beautiful
Ballad of the Green Berets
The Battle Hymn of the Republic
The Battle Cry of Freedom
Danny Boy
Hail to the Chief
Heart of Oak
Land of Hope and Glory
Marine Corps Hymn
Over the Hills and Far Away
Rule Britannia
Scotland the Brave
The Cruel War (and many other songs)
The Girl I left Behind Me
Tramp Tramp Tramp
Waltzing Matilda
The World Turned Upside Down
