what does "long as it kivered the ground"mean?
"That's what I figgered. How come me to know, was when I was driv-in' along to Grahamsville, I said to myself, 'There's Jody now, and the hoein' ain't goin' to take him too long. What would I do this fine spring day, was I a boy?' And then I thought, 'I'd go a-ramblin'.' Most any-where, long as it kivered the ground."maybe it is "covered"
