Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)

This song came out in 1970 and was performed by Edison Lighthouse who was not a working band but an English studio group with Tony Burrows singing. This is bubblegum music but I do like it. In 1970 this song peaked at #5 on the Billboard 100, #3 in Canada and #1 in the UK.

Freedy Johnston also covered this song in 2001 and I like his version just as much or more as the original. The song didn’t chart but did get some airplay.. I have it under the original.

Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)
She ain’t got no money
Her clothes are kinda funny
Her hair is kinda wild and free
Oh, but Love grows where my Rosemary goes
And nobody knows like me
She talks kinda lazy
And people say she she’s crazy
And her life’s a mystery
Oh, but Love grows where my Rosemary goes
And nobody knows like me
There’s something about her hand holding mine
It’s a feeling that’s fine
And I just gotta say
She’s really got a magical spell
And it’s working so well
That I can’t get away
I’m a lucky fella
And I’ve just got to tell her
That I love her endlessly
Because Love grows where my Rosemary goes
And nobody knows like me
There’s something about her hand holding mine
It’s a feeling that’s fine
And I just gotta say
She’s really got a magical spell
And it’s working so well
That I can’t get away
I’m a lucky fella
And I’ve just got to tell her
That I love her endlessly
Because Love grows where my Rosemary goes
And nobody knows like me
Fadeout:
It keeps growing every place she’s been
And nobody knows like me
If you’ve met her, you’ll never forget her
And nobody knows like me
La la la- believe it when you’ve seen it
Nobody knows like me

  1. That is one of those types of songs that if I were making a Best Songs of 1970 list- wouldn’t make the list- but every time I hear it on the radio I enjoy it. Whatever happened to Freedy Johnson- his first few albums were great and highly acclaimed..I am sure he is still out there but you never hear his name anymore- anywhere.

    1. I really liked Freedy Johnson also…he just disappeared. Bad Reputation and Seventies Girl were my favorites.
      You are right…not in the best song category but a fun song.

  2. I agree with you both– the original was a really good single…not one of the best of the 70s but probably hit my top 30 or so for the year it came out, and a nice treat to hear once in awhile
