This is the basic form of the tune. Everyone plays this tune in different ways, as the majority of players would learn it by ear. You can try taking notes up an octave to liven the tune up a bit and prevent repetitiveness.

Silent Annie Lyrics For The Lonesome Boatman
I saw which nearly broke my heart
A tramp lay dying
In the park
I knelt beside him to hear him speak
And the words that
He spoke were very
Weak
2
He told me a story of
Long since past
Of a gallant ship with it’s long grey mast
Of his captain’s cap
With it’s shining braid
And the wonderfull voyages that he made
3
Oh silent annie was that great ships name
Like a token of love
He spoke her name
She sailed round the horn
Ay’e more than once
She could cut through
The waves
Like a sharpen’d lance
4
Oh believe me he said
As his eyes filled with tears
Like a drunk on the corner
Remembering his years
He reached out his hand
And he took it in mine
I believe you i said
And he gave a sad smile
5
Then came the day when they towed her away
Her sid’es they were sore
From the sea’s angered spray
He said she’s unfit to
Sail out once more
They tugged her more windward
All around sandyshore
6
As they broke silent annie
I watched with a sigh
I remembered her beauty
When i was a boy
She was my one love my
Lifes only dream
When we sailed out together
As captain and queen
7
It started to rain i
Felt my hand tight
He squeezed even harder
As he ended the fight
The people they gathered
And watched with dismay
The ambulance men came and took him away
8
I got to my feet and i
Walked through the park
The sun it had gone but
It was not yet dark
My body was wet my
Clothes were not many
My thoughts were around
By the ship silent annie
