Davenutt, I remember being under the same impression. Bailey did not always announce, in his concerts at folk festivals, who had written the songs he was singing (or maybe the crowd was just too loud for me to hear his spoken introductions). I don't think he was trying to con anyone into believing he had written those songs I suppose he just assumed the songs were well enough known that festival audiences would know who the writers were. Alas, he overestimated my musical knowledge on occasion.
