Harry Belafonte's, "Jamaica Farewell"
The Lyrics:
And when I reached Jamaica, I made a stop
But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, my head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
[and then later in the song]
Though I've been from Maine to Mexico
Why:
The country of Jamaica, the Jamaican city of Kingston, the U.S. state of Maine, and the country of Mexico.
