I found a website where Texas lists every capital execution from 1982 on. One of the more interesting things about it is that it includes any last statements the prisoners made. Interesting reading. Lots of "foxhole converts" among them, I note.

That shit is depressing...

Most of the ones i read were of men who were contrite and ready to face the end. One guy yakked about an execution of the guys he was on death row for. He demanded to be set free. Most were sorry and said goodbye to their loved ones. Quite a few utter the god word in the manner of forgiveness. Man that's going to keep me up tonight. Like looking at a roadside catastrophic accident.
