Conway Twitty And Loretta Lynn performs "Makin' Believe (Wed, 31 Oct 2018)
"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". Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty released a duet version of the song in 1988 and used it as the title track for their final album together. Although the song was not a radio hit for them, it was a popular number at their concerts and the album sold fairly well via television ads. WIKIPEDIA Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty - Making Believe lyrics   Making 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 Making 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 Making believe, I'll spend my lifetime Loving you and 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 Making 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 lifetime Loving you and making believe
