”Morning Dew”, also known as “(Walk Me Out in the) Morning Dew”, is a post-apocalyptic folk-rock song written by Canadian singer Bonnie Dobson in 1962, that has become a standard.
According to Dobson in a 1993 interview, “Morning Dew” was inspired by the film On the Beach.
Fred Neil heard Dobson’s song and re-arranged it to suit his own style. Tim Rose heard Neil’s version and then recorded his own in 1966, adding himself as co-writer. Through a loophole in US copyright law, Rose was able to claim royalties. Dobson has consistently questioned Rose’s right to a co-writing credit.
