jee
Gee Gee, v. i. [imp. & p. p. {Geed}; p. pr. & vb. n. {Geeing}.] 1. To agree; to harmonize. [Colloq. or Prov. Eng.] --Forby. [1913 Webster]

2. [Cf. G. j["u], interj., used in calling to a horse, It. gi[`o], F. dia, used to turn a horse to the left.] To turn to the off side, or from the driver (i.e., in the United States, to the right side); -- said of cattle, or a team; used most frequently in the imperative, often with off, by drivers of oxen, in directing their teams, and opposed to haw, or hoi. [Written also {jee}.] [1913 Webster]

Note: In England, the teamster walks on the right-hand side of the cattle; in the United States, on the left-hand side. In all cases, however, gee means to turn from the driver, and haw to turn toward him. [1913 Webster]

{Gee ho}, or {Gee whoa}. Same as {Gee}. [1913 Webster]
