The song is originally played on the guitar and the banjo. Here's how I play the 
song on the guitar. 
It sounds better with two guitars, so find a friend who plays the guitar as well.

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

          G              Em
Lord, I'm one, Lord, I'm two, 
          Am               C
Lord, I'm three, Lord, I'm four, 
          Am           C                G
Lord, I'm five hundred miles a way from home.
          G               Em
Away from home, away from home, 
          Am              C
Away from home, away from home, 
          Am           C               G    
Lord, I'm five hundred miles away from home.

      G           Em
Not a shirt on my back, 
      Am          C
Not a penny to my name. 
        Am            C           G 
Lord, I can't go back home this-a way.
       G           Em
This-A way, this-A way, 
       Am          C
This-A way, this-A way, 
        Am            C           G
Lord, I can't go back home this-a way.

For the solo you can play the intro's part, or better yet, 
improvise in the same key the way you feel it ;)
