Subject: INQ: an antiwar song

Speaking of women in the Vietnam War (see Benjamin Berry's inquiry), I
wonder if anyone can help me track down a song of which a friend of mine
once had a recording. Unfortunately I've lost touch with the friend. The
singer was a woman with a very raw voice and it starts (a capella), 'My
name is Penny Evans and I just turned 21, a young widow from the war that's
being fought in Vietnam...' I don't really remember much of the rest of it,
except that it was quite moving in a simple sort of way. Anyone know the
singer and/or title? I doubt this was hit-parade material so I suppose it
could have been recorded and sung by lots of people. Thanks for anyone's
