This song in hindi was very popular from the movie Jurm. The hindi lyrics were by Indeevar.
Here is the earliest recording of the American folk song by The Journeymen in 1961 which Music Director Rajesh Roshan copied.

If you miss the train I’m on,
You will know that I am gone,
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.
A hundred miles, a hundred miles,
A hundred miles, a hundred miles,
you can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.

 

Lord, I’m one, Lord, I’m two, Lord,
I’m three, Lord, I’m four, Lord,
I’m five hundred miles a way from home.
Away from home, away from home,
Away from home, away from home,
Lord, I’m five hundred miles away from home.
Not a shirt on my back,
Not a penny to my name.
Lord, I can’t go back home this-a way.
This-a way, this-a way,
This-a way, this-a way,
Lord, I can’t go back home this-a way.

If you miss the train I’m on,
You will know that I am gone,
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.
A hundred miles, a hundred miles,
A hundred miles, a hundred miles,
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.
