Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
  1. \Gee\, v. i. [imp. & p. p. {Geed}; p. pr. & vb. n.
    {Geeing}.]
    1. To agree; to harmonize. [Colloq. or Prov. Eng.] --Forby.
    
    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}.]
    
    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.
    
    {Gee ho}, or {Gee whoa}. Same as {Gee}.
    
    
  2. \Gee\, v. t. [See {Gee} to turn.]
    To cause (a team) to turn to the off side, or from the
    driver. [Written also {jee}.]
