. It was actually cobbled together by Woody Guthrie out of One Dime and a chorus he probably borrowed from Leadbelly.
The Hey, hey, hey, hey chorus features on Leadbelly's See See Rider. This was taken up by Sonny Terry

Quote from: Prof Scratchy
Sonny's lyrics reveal indebtedness to Leadbelly, with the tag line 'Hey, hey, hey, hey'.
Chris Barber may have got New York Town Blues from Sonny, who had sung it with Woody Guthrie. Just a possibility, but Chris did try to learn from real bluesmen, and at least once  booked Sonny and Brownie to tour with his band. And the singing on New York Town Blues is how the band sound when they copy Sonny and Brownie.

From John Cowley's assessment of the Leadbelly LoC recordings which I have been reading and would recommend. Thanks to Bunker Hill for posting the link originally:

I'm All Out And Down is related to the recording Lovin' Babe made in 1929 by Ragtime Texas? (Henry Thomas)
