Note from Jake Rivers:
This is my sixth 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 fourth invitational was based on any Country & Western song and the fifth on songs by Merle Haggard.
The current invitational is based on any song written or performed by Willie Nelson.
Note from JJ:
Hey, since my three other attempts (El Paso, Silver Wings and Honky-Tonk Hero) at this turned out okay, I decided to try my luck again. This story will be significantly shorter than the others and I will post a new chapter every Wednesday.
My incredibly talented young friend Dream-Girl edited this story. If there are mistakes or typos (and I'm betting there are a few) rest assured that I accidentally stuck them in fiddling around with the text after she had worked her magic.
