An old man playing his own guitar for a living along the busy street of Manila.

Written and produced by: Lourigan N. Lacaba

Isang gitara.
Anim na kwerdas.
Sa kamay ko’y hawak-hawak.

Kinalabit ang isa.
Pangalawa.
Hanggang kumaskas sa ikalima.

Sumilay ang tunog.
Mga yabag ng tao’y nalugod.
Anim na piso na nilagay nila sa aking lumang salakot.

Araw. Gabi.
Hindi natinag sa paghikbi.
Nais ko lamang paningin ko’y makakitang muli.
