An early example of "what you done done" (later famous for being in "See See Rider") is

"Boll Weevil, Boll Weevil, just look what you done done"

from a Georgia musician's "Boll Weevil Blues" as quoted in the Monroe [North Carolina] _Journal_, 7/23/1920.

Lethia Hill's recording "Old North State Blues" predates Ma Rainey's "See See Rider" and includes "just see what you done done/You made me love you...." It was written by Noah Perkins, who was born in North Carolina in about 1883.

Hi, Joseph -
I take it you're looking for other songs that use the phrase "what you done done."

Looking for "what you done done" (in quotes) brings up some interesting stuff on Google. Most notable is a song titled "See What You Done Done" by Baby Tate. Good song:

See What You Done Done-Baby Tate
E position, standard tuning

Hey, hey, babe, what you tryin' to do?
I said, hey, hey, babe, what you tryin' to do?
Gone and made me love you, but that's all right for you

You know, my gal wears a hat
Sometimes she wears a tam
She got great big legs and a shape like Georgia ham

Now, if you lose your money
Please don't lose your mind
If you lose your woman, please don't fool with mine

I said, hey, hey, see what you done done
I said, hey, hey, see what you done done
You done made me love you and now your man done come

Well, I dreamed last night
That the woman I love was dead
But when I woke up, baby, I was just talkin' all out my head

But what you want with a woman
And she can't beg, borrow or steal?
If you get in trouble, she can't bring you a decent meal

And I feel like snappin'
My pistol in your face
I'm gonna let the lonesome graveyard be your restin' place

I said, hey, hey, see what you done done
I said, hey, hey, see what you done done
You done made me love you and now your man done come

Another "See What You Done, Done (Hymn No. 9)" is an interesting piece about the Vietnam War by Delia Gartrell: Gartrell's song was also recorded by the Persuasions.

See What You Done, Done (Hymn No. 9)
(Delia Gartrell)

"See what you done done to my only son
Why he was fighting in your war

America, I gave you my only son
Right away you sent him off
To fight in Vietnam...
He was a good soldier and he really did his part
I was so proud when he won that medal
The one they call the Purple Heart
I didn't know that when he went off to serve his country
I didn't know you'd send him back to me a stoned junkie...

I watched him one day take some money from my purse
That's when I knew his habit had gotten worse...
My son died from an overdose"
