"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.[1]

The song's build up is to illustrate the ocean waves coming in and out to and from the shores, due to the ebb tides.

The first three notes are identical to the first three notes of the Erroll Garner song "Misty" (1954).

This song is not to be confused with the title song from the movie Ebb Tide (1937), which is a composition by Leo Robin and Ralph Rainger.
