Bonnie Dobson (born November 13, 1940, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) 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 was born in Toronto. Her father was a union organizer and opera lover, and an early music influence was Paul Robeson and The Weavers. Dobson became part of the active folk-revival scene in Toronto, performing in local coffee houses and at the Mariposa Festival. She later moved to the United States where she performed in coffee houses across the country and recorded several albums. After returning to Toronto in 1967 she continued to perform locally in coffee houses as well programs on the CBC.
Dobson has consistently questioned Rose's right to a co-writing credit for "Morning Dew" (stating that Rose first heard it as sung by Fred Neil).
After retiring in the 1980s, Dobson released a new album in 2013 with the Hornbeam label and launched a number of new concert dates.
