You may be relieved to know that the melody originates as a British drinking song, and not an American creation.
You could go back to “My Country ‘Tis of Thee”....no wait, that’s British too.

I’ve always disliked our national anthem, both for it’s content and as a piece of music. It’s lyric is bellicose and, melody, if you’d like to call it that, ugly. But then, it’s American. The average high school junior with minimal musical talent and gift for writing could come up with a far better anthem.
While they’re dumping the Star Spangled Banner, they can dump the pledge of allegiance, too.
