Looking for the lyrics and also the mp3 of this song. Probably goes back to the 70's. I'm thinking male singer, but possibly a duet. I think the title is THE QUESTION. Searching GOOGLE but no luck so far.
Lyrics go something like this:

Between the battle's thunder, a soldier sits and wonders,
The question he is holding in his hand.
He wonders how to answer, the question in the letter,
And so he reads it over once again.

Your little daughter's crying, she wants to see her Daddy,
She wonders why it is you don't come home.
.................................................. ..................................
.................................................. .....................................

She's been asking questions, that I have alwas answered,
He's helping someone in a far off land.
But she has this new question , that I can't seem to answer,
And maybe you can help her understand.

She said, "Remember all those people, on the other side of town,
Daddy said he'd like to help someday,
Well why can't Daddy help them, instead of who he's helping,
And then he wouldn't be so far away.
