Homeownership: Rawhide! (Musical Tribute)

The following chart shows the homeownership rate decline by age since the first quarter of 2008.

The group getting out the fastest was born in the 1970s (35 to 44 years old). That would be the red line. Just look at it go. Where it stops, nobody knows!

Now the oldest generation is even getting out. That would be the black line. Look at the rise over the past few years. They were our pillar of strength! Why must they leave!

Count 'em out, ride 'em in
Ride 'em in, count 'em out
Count 'em out, ride 'em in

Keep movin', movin', movin'
Though they're disapprovin'
Keep them dogies movin'

Don't try to understand 'em
Just rope, throw, and brand 'em

The future's so bright, soon we'll be living high and wide!
