"Ebb Tide" is a popular song, written in 1953 by the lyricist Carl Sigman and composer Robert Maxwell. An instrumental version by organist Kenneth W. Griffin was played in the fifth season premiere of the TV drama Mad Men.
The song's build up is to illustrate the ocean waves coming in and out to and from the shores, due to those Ebb Tides.
