A' that and a' that

Posted by UC on July 14, 2004

I wonder what "a' that and a' that" means. I found it in "The Green Mile".

Don't let nothing happen to Mr. Jingles, I could hear Delacroix saying in a voice that wouldn't stay steady. I could hear that, and I could feel the warmth of Mr. Jingles as the Frenchman handed it to me, just a mouse, smarter than most of the species, no doubt, but still just a mouse for a' that and a' that.
