I'm looking for the lyrics to a song called Cameronian Set.
I heard it on the radio a couple of times performed by "Cherish The Ladies." I didn't see it in the song collection here.
The only words I can remember are from the first line and go:
"It's fine to be a warrior."

Wikipedia has a pretty good definition of "Cameronian":
Tha M'Intinn Raoir / Duke Of Gordon / The Cameronian / The Lady Of The House
I found lyrics for "Tha M'Intinn Raoir"
at this page: http://interlyrics.com/song-lyrics/3242173-517894/Tha-M'Intinn-Raoir---Si%FAdaibh-Bhalachaibh
Tha M'Intinn Raoir, a nochd' sa raior
Is fad na h'oidhche bho'-raior
Tha m'intinn raior, a nochd' sa raoir
Aig ceann tigh Choinnich Dhomhaill
Ged a sheol mi fada bhuaip
Air long nan crannaibh caola
Tha mo chridhe'n Grabhair
Aig Anna Choinnich Dhomhaill
Sioban na mara
Tha dol seachad air gach taobh dhiom
Iomhaigh mo leannain ann
Anna Choinnich Dhomhaill
This is more-or-less what I hear on the recording.
I think the other pieces in the medley are instrumentals (see links above), but there is a repeated line toward the end that I can't understand. I think the line you hear as "It's fine to be a warrior" is "Is fad na h'oidhche bho'-raior."
Hope that helps. The first verse is repeated very often, so I gather that's the chorus.
