As we all steel ourselves for the final episodes of Late Night with David Letterman, Tom Waits makes it even more difficult with his touching, bittersweet new song “Take One Last Look” that he performed for the first time in front of Dave and George Clooney last night. Just before he begins, Waits says, “This one’s for you, Dave”

On the chorus of the spare ballad, Waits sings: “Take one last look at the place that you are leaving.”

Watch the clip above.

It was also announced earlier today that Eddie Vedder will be the final musical guest on Letterman next Monday. As Consequence of Sound notes, if all goes similarly to recent performances by Dave Matthews Band and Ryan Adams, Vedder will likely perform “Black” off of Pearl Jam‘s 1992 album Ten. The song was a brief bit on the show back in the ’90s.
