About the royalty-free patriotic sheet music covers and songs
All of the digital printables I’m offering in this patriotic collection are royalty-free. Either there was no known copyright or the copyright has expired and the content has moved into the public domain. As such, you’re welcome to use the sheet music and images for personal and commercial use without providing any attribution.
Please don’t distribute the download files directly. If family, friends, or co-workers are interested in their own sheet music covers, songs, or postcards, please send them a link to this post, so they can download their own files. Thank you!
Sheet music covers
Countless vintage sheet music collections have gorgeous illustrated covers. I have eight full-color detailed patriotic sheet music covers to share with you as well as three simpler black and white sheet music covers.
I’ve sized all of the sheet music covers to 8×10 orientation for easy printing and framing.
Full-color sheet music covers
The full-color sheet music covers are as follows: For Old Glory, For Old Glory II, Our National War Songs, Patriotic Songs, That Patriotic Melody, The Stars and Stripes Forever, Variations on Yankee Doodle, and Yankee Doodle.
Black and white sheet music covers
The black and white sheet music covers are as follows: Our Boys at the Front, Our Flag, and Patriotic Songs of America.
I have the sheet music to accompany some but not all of the above sheet music covers. I’ve formatted all of the following patriotic sheet music selections to 8×10 format.
>> [For Old Glory] <<
>> [For Old Glory II] <<
>> [Our Boys at the Front] <<
>> [Our Flag] <<
>> [Patriotic Songs of America] <<
>> [That Patriotic Melody] <<
>> [The Stars and Stripes Forever] <<
The final set of royalty-free 4th of July printables is sheet music from a fantastic vintage book called The World’s Collection of Patriotic Songs and Airs of the Different Nations. It’s very likely that I’ll be sharing more selections from this book in the future. Each of the download links includes original ratio, 8×10, and 8×10 with white border versions of the sheet music. The original ratio versions give you the most creative control for DIY projects while the 8×10 versions make framing projects quick and easy.
>> [E Pluribus Unum] <<
>> [Our Flag is There] <<
>> [Red, White, and Blue] <<
>> [Star-Spangled Banner] <<
>> [The American Hymn] <<
>> [Yankee Doodle] <<
I also have a single-page version of Yankee Doodle from a different patriotic songbook that I wanted to share here. I love the two-page Yankee Doodle from The World’s Collection, which features a four-part harmony arrangement. However, depending on your craft project or framing project, you may prefer the one-page version.

As a bonus, I’m also sharing a few royalty-free 4th of July postcards. I’ll be honest: I haven’t shared a full collection of vintage 4th of July postcards with you because I don’t have one (yet). They’re considerably harder to come by and significantly more expensive than postcards for many other major holidays (such as St. Patrick’s Day and Easter).
But I found four royalty-free 4th of July postcards to share with you, which are as follows.
- Two of the postcards are from the Patriotic Fantasy Animals Series by S. E. Clark. I have butterflies and fish.
- The third postcard is by Ellen Clapsaddle. It has a little girl carrying flowers and a little boy carrying American flags with the message “How sleep the brave who sink to rest, by all their country’s wishes blest.”
- The fourth postcard is by F. A. Owen. It features a little boy lighting a firework with the message “Blow, fellows, blow! But don’t get excited and thus be ignited. Powder burns, you know.”
I’ve sized all of the postcards to 5.5″ x 3.5.”
