Me and my Quadra have been working very hard for the past couple days trying
to figure this damn song out. Here's what I came up with. If anyone has
any corrections/suggestions, PLEASE let me know. I know there's gotta be
some mistakes in there somewhere, especially the bridge...
UNBREAKABLE HEART (by Benmont Tench; recorded by Carlene Carter)

[Actually in Bb; capo 3.] 
[Eacb cbord is balf a measure, except "Em - D" is one measure total.] 
[Sorry it's kind of hard to read; the lines of this song are structured
oddly. All the verses are basically the same, but I wrote them all out
because they're not easy to memorize.]
[I'm pretty unsure about a lot of these chords, especially in the bridge.
Any suggestions are more than welcome.]
[The C's and Em's with * by them have an extra high G in them (pinky on
the 3rd fret of the E string).]
[Some unusual cbord fingerings, and more comments, are at tbe end.] 
[G] [intBm]ro] [C] [Am7/D] [G] [Bm] [C] [Am7/D]
An empty [G]house,[Bm] [C] a [Am7/D]broken [G]fairy [Bm]tale[C] [Am7/D]

God makes everything but unbreakable hearts
Am7/D: xx0010 Em*: 022003 C*: x32013 C/D: xx0010 A7sus4: x02030
A9/C#: x42000 Am/D: xx0210 Ddim7: xx0101 or xx0131 F#m7-5: 2x2210
A couple other notes on the chords:
1) The C* and Em* chords probably aren't really played by the guitar;
I just put them in because they echo the melody of the song.
2) The B7 isjust two quarter notes. The first doesn't include an F# on
the high E string, the second does. (I.e., play x2120x, then x21202.)
3) In the bridge, where it goes Em - D, don't play the highest strings on
either of those chords. (The D is more like D5.)
4) In the A9/C#, make sure you hit that C#, or it'll sound weird.
5) In the Em* chords before A9/C#, you can play the descending notes
by moving your pinky from 3 down to 2 as you get toward the A9.
