  ^^^ These 2's should be 4's.

                       There should be a 4 between 2 and 5 here.^^^

(I assume that "full bend" in the first line means you bend it so that it
sounds two frets higher; if that's the case, then that's fine.)


Here's some chords that I scraped together (in C, not E):

THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER (Francis Scott Key)
--------------------------------------------
[I suspect that some of these chords are very subject to improvisation;
 in fact, if you wanted to, you could pretty much play a different chord
 for each note, by playing C under C, E, or G, F under F, A, or C, and so
 on, sort of like I did for the very last line.  So I just wrote down my
 own little interpretation.]
 
   C       G   C          Am        D7 G
Oh say can you see by the dawn's early light
        C          G      F      C          G    C
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming
G           C           G      C                 Am  D7   G
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
         C           G       F       C      G  C
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming
        C            G                Dm          F
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air
     C                 G     F        C    Am  D7    G
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there
   C              F             Dm         Gsus G
Oh say, does that star-spangled banner yet wa - ave
         C G  C  F   C            Am      G   C
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave
