If you're going to wake them up, can I ask a few questions?

Years ago (maybe 15), I heard a gentleman at a Bordermarch bardic championship
sing a wonderful ballad about life patrolling the border. It included a chorus
about how they drank more and were wilder because of  dangers they faced, and
included a line about dancing on the edge of the sword.
Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Here's a more recent song I'm searching for. Again at Bordermarch, at a fall
melees just a couple of years ago (when Simon and Tessa were installed as Vicar
and Vicaress), a young lady sang about women warriors.
Cydric the Fiddler said it was by a female folksong group out of Austin, the
name of which had something to do with ravens. Sound familiar?

Any hints on either song would be much appreciated!
