Note from Jake Rivers: This is my fourth semi-annual "invitational." The initial one was based on the Statler Brother's song, "This Bed of Rose's." The second used the Marty Robbins El Paso trilogy: "El Paso", "El Paso City " and "Faleena." The third had stories based on the various versions of "Maggie May" or "Maggie Mae." The current invitational has looser criteria: the stories are based on any Country & Western song. Regards, Jake
This is my Country Music entry in Jake Rivers' invitational. I chose 'Detroit City' as my song. I checked and this song was sung by many country artist including Dolly Parton and Bobby Bare among others. It's a city that I know quite well since I was born there.
