You packed your bags as I recall And you walked slowly down the hall You said you had to get away to ease your mind And all you needed was a just little of time Oh winter's passed, spring and fall You never wrote me, you never called Nathan Jones you've been gone too long Gone too long... If a woman could die of tears Nathan Jones, well, I wouldn't be here The key that you're holding won't fit my door And there's no room in my heart for you no more 'Cause, winter's passed, spring and fall you never wrote me, you never called Nathan Jones you've been gone too long Gone too long Nathan Jones, Nathan Jones... Nathan Jones, ooh.. Winter's passed, spring and fall You never wrote me, you never called Nathan Jones you've been gone too long Gone too long Nathan Jones you've been gone too long ...gone too long Nathan Jones you've been gone too long ...gone too long Nathan Jones you've been gone too long ... gone too long...

Babbling Babette from Tulsa Ok"Nathan Jones" was a very cool hit for The Supremes in '71. I loved the alternating lead vocals & the overall bouncey feel it had. I played the heck out of this single until the grooves wore out. haa! By this time, I definitely was not a fan of their boss, Berry Gordy Jr. for his non-support and all around rotten underhanded tactics toward nearly all of his Motown acts. Still, The Supremes remained on the charts pleasing their many fans.
John from Nashville, TnA step forward for the Supremes. Although "You Keep Me Hanging On" has the girls throwing a man out of their lives, there seems to be some heartbreak and regret in their delivery. On this song, the girls definitely don't want to see the man riding or walking.
Kristin from Bessemer, AlLove the techno-pop vocals on this one.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
