"Adios at Yangguan" is a piece of music played with lyre according to a poem written by Wang Wei,
a famous poet in the Tang Dynasty (618-907).
Wang Wei wrote the poem when he saw off a friend to serve in army at Weicheng,
a small town in Yangguan neighboring the border.
The poem goes like this: "In the central town Weicheng, it rains lightly in the morning.
All the houses and willows look fresh after the rain. I suggest you have another cup of wine,
as soon as you go out of the Yangguan Pass, there are no friends."
Instrument players made it a see-off song based on the poem. Even today,
some people usually sing this song when they see off friends.
