Kitty Wells' "Making Believe" was recorded by the country music standout in 1955 and became one of the biggest hits of her career.

In the early days of the country music industry, record labels were reluctant to issue albums by country’s female artists until Kitty Wells proved that women could indeed sell and attract a fan following. One of her chart-topping songs was “Making Believe,” which was written by Jimmy Work and recorded by Wells in 1955.

“Making Believe” Lyrics

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
