Bonnie Dobson (born November 13, 1940 in Toronto) is a Canadian folk music songwriter, singer, and guitarist, most known in the 1960s for composing the songs "I'm Your Woman" and "Morning Dew". The latter, augmented (with a controversial co-writing credit) by Tim Rose, became a melancholy folk rock standard, covered by Fred Neil, Lulu, Nazareth, the Grateful Dead, the Jeff Beck Group, Robert Plant, the Pozo Seco Singers, The 31st of February (including Greg Allman, Duane Allman, and Butch Trucks of The Allman Brothers Band), Long John Baldry and Einstürzende Neubauten, among many others.

Dobson has consistently questioned Rose's right to a co-writing credit for "Morning Dew"[1] (he first heard it as sung by Fred Neil), but due to a loophole in US copyright law, Rose was successful in his claim for royalties.
