I thought about that, but I think the end of the refrain was something like 
that for Louie Louie..

Hang down your head Tom Dooley was actually the first song I was taught when 
I was taking guitar lessons (late 1960s) as a kid..

That looks like someone combined the beginning of "Louie Louie" with the
last line of the chorus of "Hang Down Your Head, Tom Dooley."
