Big Long Slidin' Thing is a musical composition recorded for Mercury Records in 1954 by Dinah Washington.

"Thing" is sung by a then 30-year-old Washington pining for her absent man and his trombone (his big long slidin' thing). Such double entendres were commonplace in R&B of the era.

Its close relation is the 1949 Long John Blues
