Back in the 1700-1800s there were few copyright laws. The music to the Star Spangled Banner was taken from the mid 1770s and it had been composed for a group of London gentlemen who had formed a social club. During that time, it was common for lyrics to be put to the tunes of other songs. John Stafford Smith wrote the music to the song even though he was not a member of the club. He was an organist and composer and a music critic in London. One of the founders of the social club, Ralph Tomlinson, wrote the words to the social club's song in 1776 and he may have commissioned Smith to write the music.

In the morning, first light revealed a US flag flying over the fort, and Key felt inspired to write the poem that later (only a few weeks later) became the the lyrics of an new American patriotic song. (The music was an old drinking song.)
