Information

This was going to be a cover of the Love Affair song from their 1968 album: "The Everlasting Love Affair".

The song was initially suggested as the B-side to "Lady Willpower" (July, 2019), but never materialised.
The song was then mentioned again (November, 2019) via Morrissey Central as the B-side to "Bobby, Don't You Think They Know?":

"The first single is "Bobby, Don't You Think They Know?", which features vocals by Thelma Houston. The B-side is "Rainbow Valley", a cover of the UK hit by The Love Affair."

This, again, never materialised.
It has remained unreleased since.

The original lyrics are reproduced below and it remains unknown if Morrissey recorded the song without making any lyrical changes.

Lyrics

I'm heading home again,
'cause it still seems I don't fit in.
And the world ain't all
I thought that it would be.
From this hill I'm looking down,
upon that friendly town.
There's a place I know
that's paradise to me.

The sun always shines
down in my Rainbow Valley.
There's one that's always mine,
down in my Rainbow Valley.
You can love and share a dream,
beside that crystal stream.
So lead me where the rainbow ends
in our valley.

The bird's sweetest song
comes from my Rainbow Valley.
They sing the whole year long
down in my Rainbow Valley.
The flowers speak to me,
an' say our love should be.
And heaven oh sweet music
flows from our valley

I'll never leave;
I belong in Rainbow Valley.
For life to love is free,
there's no wrong in Rainbow Valley.
When ever we can fly
through the cotton candy sky.
So lead me where the rainbow ends
in our valley.

The sun always shines
down in my Rainbow Valley.
There's one who's always mine
down in my Rainbow Valley.
I'll never leave;
I belong in Rainbow Valley.
