Theme Song for TV Movie? "Five Hundred Miles Away From Home"

Recently I came across a song on an old Bobby Bare CD. The song is called Five Hundred Miles (Away from Home). I think it came from an old TV movie from when I was a kid.

If memory serves, it starred Jim Brown as a prison inmate. I did look up Jim Brown on Wikipedia, but none of the movies listed there ring a bell. There is no "credit" given to a movie on the CD either. Anyone remember this movie? You guys are terrific and I really enjoy this site.
Thank you.

Are the lyrics:

If you miss the train I'm on, you will know that I am gone

You can hear the whistle blowing 100 miles

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 etc.

Lord I'm one lord I'm two lord I'm three Lord I'm four,

Lord I'm five hundred miles away from home

If that sounds familiar it's called "500 miles" I think Peter, Paul and Mary covered it.
