Linda Pearson Lyr Req: Kiss the Children for Me, Mary (MacColl) (13) Lyrics 11 Feb 98

I am looking for the lyrics of an Irish folk song which goes something like the following -:

Kiss the children for me, Mary
Don't let them pine or grieve
Tell them it's hard I'm working for them
though it breaks my hard to leave"

The song was on one of "The Corries" early albums and speaks of the heartbreak of expatriate construction workers living away from their families.
