Story of the Folk Song Once upon a time in the village of Sofular in the Hafik district of Sivas, the people began to show signs of going astray. Hızır, one of the young people living in the village, left the village because he did not like the condition of the place he lived in and went to Pir Sultan Abdal in Banaz and told him: - "The people you wish well for are rising day by day. Wish me well too; let me rise too". Pir Sultan Abdal listened attentively to this request and said to Hızır: - "I will pray for you, but if you become a great man one day, you will come and execute me". But despite what he said, Pir Sultan started praying... The prayers paid off and Hızır became the governor of Sivas. Afterwards, he brought Pir Sultan Abdal, who never left his mind, to his presence and set a big table for him. After looking at the food on Hızır's table, Pir Sultan said; - "But this food is mixed with haram. It is obvious that orphans have the right to all this food. Not even my dogs would eat this food." Hızır was very upset by these words. But Pir Sultan Abdal continued his words: - "If you want, let's call my dogs and see if they will eat it". Then the dogs came, just as Pir Sultan Abdal had requested. First of all, the food of Hızır was placed in front of them and the dogs sniffed the food and then walked away without eating it. Immediately afterwards, a tray full of other food was placed in front of the dogs. The dogs again approached the tray, sniffed it and then began to eat it with appetite. Hızır, who was very angry at this situation, had Pir Sultan Abdal imprisoned in Toprakkale. Afterwards, Hızır Pasha, who had lost his anger in the intervening time, invited Pir Sultan Abdal to his presence again and said to him: - "Go on thinking what you think again. But in the presence of the sultan's servants, sing a saying that does not praise the Shah and I will forgive you". Then Pir Sultan Abdal was sent for a saz and a scribe was called to record what he had to say. Pir Sultan Abdal took the saz in his hand and started to sing Sivas Ellerinde Sazım Çalınır by saying; "If the khems write a fatwa, if the mufti writes a fatwa, if the lasso hangs my neck, if the dagger cuts my head, I will not turn back from my path...". Then Hızır ordered Pir Sultan Abdal to be hanged. This is the story of the folk song. The folk song about Pir Sultan Abdal never deviating from the path he knew right is also one of the symbols of Sivas. Although many people have performed the folk song until today; It is possible to say that the taste left by Selda Bağcan's interpretation is different.
