Morning Dew

Album: Bonnie Dobson (1962)
  • Walk me out in the morning dew my honey
    Walk me out in the morning dew today
    I can't walk you out in the morning dew my honey
    I can't walk you out in the morning dew, at all

    Thought I heard a young girl cry 'Mama'
    Thought I heard a young girl cry today
    I didn't hear no young girl crying 'Mama, mama, mama'
    I didn't hear no young girl cry at all

    Thought I heard a young boy cry
    I thought I heard a young man cry today
    I didn't hear no young boy cry
    You didn't hear no young man cry

    Now, there is no more morning dew
    Now, there is no more morning dew
    What they've been saying all these years was not true
    Now, there's no more morning dew

    No, no, no, no more
    No, no, no, no more
    No more morning dew
    No more morning dew

  • Jean-marie from BelgiumI know the song from Long John Baldry's version. One day I went to the station to go to work by train. This version played on the radio. I stayed listening in my car and took a train later. Great song, great version too.
  • Fuzzy from North AmericaDevo also did a rather elaborate cover of this on their 1990 album, Smooth Noodle Maps.
