 for Gee whoa
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Gee \Gee\, v. i. [imp. & p. p. Geed; p. pr. & vb. n.
     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]
