Soul Music & The Vietnam War

Tony Mason Take Good Care RCA

I fell on this side while searching for something else - this 45 is a long line of sides which were turned out in the USA during the Vietnam War and this one is very explicit about the dangers of warfare.
Soul songs about the Vietnam War are almost a sub-genre of the music and the best 2 collections with informative notes and vintage photos can be found in the 2 Ace/Kent collections below.

    I remember a song but have been unable to find anything about it on the net. Does anyone know this one?
    It went something like this:
    Just came home from Vietnam,
    Came home and found my brother gone.
    The constitution, the bill of rights.
    The bus is comin'
