Chords:

I V IV I
IV I V I I
I II(min) V VI(min)
V IV III II(minor)
I II V I V(sus)

These are very vanilla chords but they work.

The really famous tune is actually only a small part of the 1st Pomp and Circumstance March - Elgar wrote 3 or 4 Pomp and Circumstance Marches, and the really famous tune is in the middle of the 1st one.

... which has also been transcribed as the song "Land of Hope and Glory."

Land of Hope and Glory,
Mother of the Free,
How shall we extol Thee,
Who are born of Thee?
Wider still and wider
Shall Thy bounds be set.
God who made Thee mighty
Make Thee mightier yet.
God who made Thee mighty
Make Thee mightier yet.

The "Land" and the "Thee" refer, obviously, to England and the British Empire in its heyday.

Regards,
