 David Letterman, a.k.a.The Big Man

 

Blast-of-fresh antics. Seismic style. Nothing off limits. Ever.

Goofy, vulnerable, snarky.

Published about three years into the production of the show, Markoe’s book takes the cake and eats it too. Frozen moments from the early seasons.

Oh, take one last look at the place that you are leaving
Take one last look.

 

A scraggly lullaby for Dave, Tom Waits nails it. Gulp.

“Take One Last Look”

Let’s watch the sun come up in another town
Try our luck a little further down
Leave the cards on the table
Leave the bread on the plate
Put your hand on the gearshift
Put your foot off the brake

And take one last look
At the place that you are leaving
Take one last look
Oh take one last look
At the place that you are leaving
Take one last look

I beg for something that the wind can carry
There are all points of ways across the waiting prairie
This car looks like it could give us a good run
A choice to leave was a good one

And take one last look
At the place that you are leaving
Take one last look
Oh take one last look
At the place that you are leaving
Take one last look

Let’s look forward to the lights that are new,
The world is a ribbon of road for you
All towns have churches and tire stops
They put up speed limit signs and they hire cops
I love to see the wind in your hair
All we ever need we can get anywhere

And take one last look
At the place that you are leaving
Take one last look
Oh take one last look
At the place that you are leaving
Take one last look
Oh take one last look
Oh take one last look
