My Dutch friend Jan Marius(webmaster of http://heyjoeversions.wordpress.com/hey-joe-versions), my wife and I met Niela and her friends in Amsterdam on July 14, 2005.
She is a very kind woman. Niela was the Billy Roberts’s girlfriend in 50’s to 1961 or 1962.
She wrote a song: Baby don’t go to town (recently released on LP: songs of leaving). Her song is the tune of Hey Joe.
Niela says: Billy Roberts wrote another lyrics and copyrighted the song under his name in 1962.

Thanks to Jan Marius, I have got "Baby don’t go to town" (different version of the LP) recorded in 1961, one year before hey joe was copyrighted by Billy Roberts.
Niela write: doing the song, on May 4th or 5th, 1961, when I recorded it at the Indian Neck Folk Festival.
(In fact, the Indian Neck Folk Festival 1961 (feat. Bob Dylan and Connie Francis) took place: at the Montowesi Hotel in Branford, Connecticut, USA on May 6th, 1961.)
