A contraction of have/has not. It arose in the 1800s in the American South, and it's prevalent in Mark Twain literature. It's still used some by old people and really rural people, but it's largely a dead phenomenon.

A mixture of the colors blue and green to look like the ocean. Said to ward away spirits, especially evil ones, because they cannot cross over water. Originated in southern parts of the United States.
It ain't blue, but it ain't greens. It's just haint.
