  • 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... Writer/s: KATHY WAKEFIELD, LEONARD CASTON

  • 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.
