There's a song out there called "Brother, Where Are You?" which goes like so:

A young boy walked down a city street
And hope was in his eyes
As he searched through the faces of the people he'd meet
For one he could recognize

Brother, where are you?
They told me that you came this way
Brother, where are you?
They said you came this way.

The eyes of the people who passed him by
Were as cold and as hard as stone
And the small boy trembled and began to cry
Because he was all alone

chorus

Oh there are many who say it's true
That brothers are we all
But then it seems there are very few
Who'll answer a brother's call

chorus

Recorded by the Remo Four, seems to have been written by Oscar Brown Jr.

I think you have the lyrics almost completely correct, Iona. Here's what I posted back in 2001: (click).
