and a full moon every night.”

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today's Newsletter features a sentimental favorite song of mine.

BONUS #1 - - Ebb Tide - Frank Sinatra

BONUS #2 - - Ebb Tide - The Righteous Brothers


"Ebb Tide" is a popular song, written in 1953 by lyricist Carl Sigman and composer Robert Maxwell.

It has been recorded many times, the best-known versions include those by Frank Chacksfield & His Orchestra (1953), a successful vocal version in the same year by Vic Damone and a stunning soulful version by Roy Hamilton, Frank Sinatra (1958), The Platters (1960), Lenny Welch (1964) and the Righteous Brothers (1965). The Righteous Brothers' version was arguably the most successful, peaking at #5 in the US. Jerry Colonna, Earl Grant and Matt Monro also recorded versions. In 1968 Ella Fitzgerald recorded it on her Columbia album, "30 by Ella".

Ebb Tide

Words by Carl Sigman (24 Sept 1909 - 26 Sept 2000)

Music by Robert Maxwell (b. 19 Apr 1921), 1953

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
