Charley Green, Play That Slide Trombone Lyrics - Jim Croce

Release information
Release Date: 2014
length: 2:35
arranger: Jim Croce
writer: [traditional]

I know a fool who blows a horn
He comes from ‘way down South
Oh yeah; And you ain’t seen such blowin’ since you been born
Like when a trombone’s to his mouth

He wails and moans, grunts and groans
He can moan just like a cow;
And you ain’t seen such blowin’
Since you been born, ‘Cause he won’t show ‘em how

Oh, Charley, won’t you play that thing, I mean the slide trombone
Make it talk, Make it sing
I mean the slide trombone
If Gabriel knew how you could blow
He’d let you lead his band, I know
Oh, Charley, won’t you play that thing
I mean the slide trombone
Oh, Charley, play that thing
I mean the slide trombone

Make it talk, Make it sing
I mean the slide trombone

Now you ain’t seen such movin’ hips
Like when the trombone’s to his lips
Charley Green, play that thing
I mean the slide trombone

Oh, yeah, I mean the slide trombone
