UNBREAKABLE HEART (by Benmont Tench; recorded by Carlene Carter)
[Actually in Bb; capo 3.]
[Each chord is half 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 chord fingerings, and more comments, are at the end.]

G   Bm   C   Am7/D     G   Bm   C   Am7/D

         G     Bm   C   Am7/D  G     Bm   C   Am7/D
An empty house,       a broken fairy tale
         G    Bm   C      Am7/D  Em*  Em*  C*  C/D
A hollow girl        with empty  arms
        A7sus4  Em     Am   B7           Em*    Em*
>From an angel's tears,      God made the stars
A9/C#   A9/C#     C*      C   Am/D    Am/D      G     Bm   C   Am7/D
        Why can't he make me     an unbreakable heart
G  Bm  C  Am7/D

           G     Bm   C     Am7/D      G        Bm   C   Am7/D
In my blue world,       you shone like heaven's fire
            G  Bm  C  Am7/D  Em*  Em*  C*  C/D
And left me crying    in the dark
          A7sus4  Em   Am      B7   Em*  Em*
How could any  -  one    be so hard
A9/C#   A9/C#   C*      C   Am/D      Am/D      G     C/G  G  G
        Did you think I had      an unbreakable heart

Ddim7/G#  Am7  F#m7-5     Em - D   C           G/B        Am        G
I    suppose     I should know       sometimes love just comes and goes
    Ddim7/G#  Am7  F#m7-5     Em - D   A7      A7     C   C/D
But I  believed,     foolish me,       we'd go on and on

     G   Bm  C    Am7/D    G       Bm   C   Am7/D
One day,      someone will come to you
             G    Bm   C   Am7/D  Em*  Em*  C*  C/D
And rock you tight   -  ly in her arms

         A7sus4  Em   Am         B7        Em*   Em*
Please remember  this   when you drop your guard
A9/C#  A9/C#  C*  C   Am/D     Am/D      G     Bm   C   Am7/D
           Nobody has     an unbreakable heart

        A7sus4  Em    Am     B7      Em*   Em*
>From an angel's wings   to a falling star
A9/C#   A9/C#     C*   C     Am/D      Am/D      G     Bm   C   Am7/D    G.
        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.
