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."
Thank you.

Wikipedia has a pretty good definition of "Cameronian":
    Cameronian was a name given to a section of the Scottish Covenanters who followed the teachings of Richard Cameron, and who were composed principally of those who signed the Sanquhar Declaration in 1680. Known also as "Society Men", "Sanquharians" and "Hilimen", they became a separate church after the religious settlement of 1690, taking the official title of Reformed Presbyterians in 1743....In the British army the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) was a regiment directly descended from the Cameronian guard, which was first raised in 1689 by James Douglas, Earl of Angus, fought at the battle of Dunkeld and was afterwards employed to restore order in the Highlands.
But I think "The Cameronian Set" is actually four songs, including an instrumental called "The 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:'Intinn-Raoir---Si%FAdaibh-Bhalachaibh

    Tha M'Intinn Raoir

    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.
