About Making Believe

"Making Believe" is a country music song written by Jimmy Work. Kitty Wells recorded a chart-topping version in 1955. The song is on many lists of all-time greatest country music songs and has been covered by scores of artists over the past fifty years, including Thorleifs, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Don Gibson, Roy Acuff, Lefty Frizzell, Wanda Jackson, Connie Francis, Ray Charles, Anita Carter, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Merle Haggard, Ernest Tubb, Social Distortion, Skeeter Davis, The Haden Triplets and Volbeat. The song is occasionally called "Makin' Believe". Singer-songwriter Work released the song as a single in February 1955 on Dot Records, and it reached #5 on Billboard's country music jukebox charts. A month later, singer Kitty Wells released the song as a single which hit #2 on the country charts and remained there for 15 weeks, still a record for a song in the runner-up position on the country Billboard charts. The song was blocked to #1 by the 21-weeks long "In the Jailhouse Now" by Webb Pierce.

Makin' believe
That you still love me
It's leaving me
Alone and so blue
But I'll always dream
Still I'll never own you
Makin' believe, it's all I can do

Can't hold you close, when you're not with me
You're somebody's love, you'll never be mine
Makin' believe, I'll spend my li-ifetime
Lo-oving you, making believe

Making believe
That I never lost you
But my happy hours
I find are so few
My plans for the future 
Will never come true-ue
Makin' believe
What else can I do

Can't hold you close, when you're not with me
You're somebody's love, you'll never be mine
Making believe, I'll spend my li-ifetime
Lo-oving you, making belie-ie-ieve
