With one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain
It is clear from the general context in the song that the singer is not in New Orleans already. And clearly he wouldn't get very far toward New Orleans with one foot on the platform and the other foot on the train (whether the train is moving towards New Orleans or not)!

We gotta get out of this place,
If it's the last thing we ever do.
We gotta get out of this place.
Girl, there's a better life for me and you.
How will there be a better life in the event that that part about "if it's the last thing we ever do" applies?

And I was so much older then
When I was young
The two lines are exact opposites. You can't be younger and older at the same time.
