Toronto, Ontario, Canada
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 the Grateful Dead and the Jeff Beck Group among many others.
Dobson has consistently questioned Rose's right to a co-writing credit for "Morning Dew" (he first heard it as sung by Fred Neil), but due to a loophole is US copyright law, Rose was successful in his claim for royalties.
