“Hail to the Chief”, the official Presidential Anthem of the United States, was originally the opening words of Walter Scott’s poem “The Lady of the Lake”, which was set to music in the early 19th century. There are Americanized lyrics as well, rarely sung.
The American lyrics to “Hail to the Chief”:
Hail to the Chief we have chosen for the nation,
Hail to the Chief! We salute him, one and all.
Hail to the Chief, as we pledge cooperation
In proud fulfillment of a great, noble call.
Yours is the aim to make this grand country grander,
This you will do, that is our strong, firm belief.
Hail to the one we selected as commander,
Hail to the President! Hail to the Chief!
