You never go up to a single person and ask "do ya'll have a beer?" cause you ain't askin' the world for a long neck, only one person.
You gotta know your conjugations, cowboy.
And word to the wise, we never, ever say "you all". Mebbe "yew" but never "you all". That's Yankee for ya'll (with many pardons to my very favorite up north friends !!) .
A brief dictionary of Texas words with pronounciation:

You hear a Texan say "I wish it would rain - not so much for me, cuz I've seen it, but for my 7 year-old."
