Raise This Barn is a song sung by Applejack and the Apple family in the episode Apple Family Reunion. The actions sung about in the song parallel the actions being performed on screen by the ponies. The song has a hoedown/square dance feel to it. In chapter 15 of the My Little Pony Equestria Girls screenplay novelization Through the Mirror, "The Canterlot High School Coronation", the DJ spins "a remix of an old favorite, 'Raise This Barn'" at the Canterlot High Fall Formal. This song serves as the seventh track on the album Songs of Ponyville. It also serves as the second track of side B on the vinyl album Magical Friendship Tour.

An instrumental version of this song can be heard in Applejack-themed levels in My Little Pony: Puzzle Party.

The song and its scene reappears in Harvesting Memories.

Lyrics

Applejack supervising the barn fixing.

[Applejack]
Yee-hoo!
Raise this barn, raise this barn
One, two, three, four
Together, we can raise this barn
One, two, three, four
Up, up, up, go the beams
Hammer those joints, work in teams
Turn 'em round quick by the right elbow
Grab a new partner, here we go
Apple family: Yeah!
Applejack: Come on, Apple family! Let's get to it! Wee-hoo!
[Applejack]
Raise this barn, raise this barn
One, two, three, four
Together, we can raise this barn
One, two, three, four
Finish the frame, recycling wood
Workin' hard, you're doin' good
Turn 'em round quick by the right elbow
Grab a new partner, here we go
Apple family: Yeah!
Applejack: Whoo-whee!
[Applejack]
Raise this barn, oh, raise this barn
One, two, three, four
Together, we can raise this barn
One, two, three, four
Slats of wood come off the ground
Hold 'em up and nail 'em down
Turn 'em round quick by the left elbow
Grab a new partner, here we go
Apple family: Yeah!
Applejack: Come on, Apples! Get 'er done!
[Apple Bloom]
Look at us, we're family
[Applejack]
Workin' together thankfully
[Apple Bloom]
We Apples, we are proud to say
[Applejack and Apple Bloom]
Stick together the pony way
[Applejack]
Bow to your partner, circle right
Get down if you're scared of heights
Forward back and twirl around
That barn's gonna be the best in town
Apple family: Yeah!
Applejack: Yee-haw! Attagirl!
Apple Bloom: Alright, let's get to it!
[Apple family]
Raise this barn, raise this barn
One, two, three, four
Together, we can raise this barn
One, two, three, four
[Applejack]
Take your brushes, young and old
Together, paint it, bright and bold
Turn 'em round quick by the left elbow
Grab a new partner, here we go
[Apple family]
We raised this barn, we raised this barn
Yes, we did
Together we sure raised this barn
Yes, we did
Being together counts the most
We all came here from coast to coast
All we need to strive to be
Is part of the Apple family
Apple Bloom: Yeah!
