What is the name of a song?

Was listening to an oldies station on the radio last night and heard a song that I would like to hear again. I caught part of it on my PDA, but the DJ never said the name or artist. The singer had a kind of a gravelly voice. Part of what I got goes like this:

There was a sad sad lady

Weeping all night long

She received a sad sad message

From the voice on the telephone

How could she tell her children

Their father was shot down

Any help would be appreciated. It sounded like an old Viet Nam protest song, so I will assume it is from the 60s or 70s

Update:

Thank you.......
