"Farewell" is a song written by Martin Quittenton and Rod Stewart. Stewart released it on his 1974 album Smiler. Among the musicians featured were Ray Jackson of Lindisfarne on mandolin, and Dick Powell on violin.

When released as a single in the United Kingdom in September 1974, the song became a Top 10 hit (No. 7) as part of a double A-side with his medley "Bring It On Home to Me/You Send Me". In the United States, this song was released as a single but its flip side, "Mine For Me," was the track that charted.
