Engine wont stay throttled up

I just did a basic tune up on one of my walk behinds. cleaned the carb, oil, blades, etc. and it starts and runs fine, but now the throttle will slowly go back to idle. I can physically watch the cable slide back down. Is this as simple as a new cable, or is there some trick?
