Try this

BALLERINA
(Dave Walters)

She's hove to again, pulled her head to wind
Drifting to nowhere borne by the tide
Roll on the day when she sails clean away
Her white winding wake to her stern

Chorus
She's a ship without water, a king's ransom daughter
Sailing alone on the tide
She slowly advanced, squared up then danced
The belle ballerina of the bay

Sailed wild for a while with ladies in style
Trips to the islands, had a hell of a time
Sailings not easy two skippers on board
Storm warnings hoisted, troubles in store

Chorus

Sailing the west coast in the teeth of a gale
Beating to windward close rigged and stowed sail
Sank to the depths of an angry green sea
A graveyard for the lady, jealousy and me

Chorus

She's hove to again, pulled her head to wind
Drifting to nowhere borne by the tide
Roll on the day when she sails clean away
Her white winding wake to her stern

Chorus
She's a ship without water, a king's ransom daughter
Sailing alone on the tide
She slowly advanced, squared up then danced
The belle ballerina of the bay
She's the belle ballerina of the bay

Still sung occasionally by Bill Whaley & Dave Fletcher

Well, Dave, I was thinking of learning the song, did a Google search for the lyrics and the very first link was to a member of my own side who wanted to learn it too! I shall leave it to you. Let's hear it soon.
