"I'm Sorry" is a song written and recorded by American country-folk singer-songwriter John Denver. Released in 1975, it was his final number-one pop hit released during his career.

Chart performance[edit]

The song, which is an apology for forsaken love,[1] "I'm Sorry" reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on September 27, 1975, as well as reaching number one on the Easy Listening chart.[2] Six weeks after topping the pop chart, the song was Denver's third and final number one on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.[3]

The flip side of "I'm Sorry" was "Calypso", and, like its A-side, enjoyed substantial radio airplay on Top 40 stations.
