I came across this tune on the LP this is Jackie DeShannon (Imperial LP-9286). Good album, by the way. This was the B-side to her 1965 hit single “What the World Needs Now Is Love.”  

Here’s DeShannon’s lyric:

I remember the boy who held his hand in mine
He was the boy not looking to change my mind
And let me tell you now, every day that he’s been away
You know, I cry all night, somehow I feel like I didn’t do right

And I can still see his face ’cause is deep in my memory
Ringing in my ears are all the things he once told to me

I don’t think he was putting me on
When he said he just had to move on
The stars up in the sky he’s reaching for
Only make me love him more

And I wonder, I wonder, I wonder

Will he remember me in some little town, ready to settle down?
Will I be there to share his pleasant dreams?
He does not know how much it means, oh, no

I remember the boy who’ll always be a part of me
And I can’t help but feel that he’ll often think of me

And I wonder, I wonder, I wonder
Will he remember me in some little town, ready to settle down?
Will I be there to share his pleasant dreams?
He does not know how much it means, oh, no
