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 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.
First the tide rushes in Plants a kiss on the shore Then rolls out to sea And the sea is very still once more
So I rush to your side Like the oncoming tide With one burning thought Will your arms open wide?
At last, we're face to face And as we kiss through an embrace I can tell, I can feel You are love, you are real Really mine
In the rain, in the dark, in the sun Like the tide at its ebb I'm at peace in the web Of your arms
