Instead of clicking on the file, click on "Show All in Finder".
The status bar at the bottom of the Finder window will show the path to each file.

In particular I have had no occasion to modify calculus.bib for a long time, but today I need to do so.  I found (several versions of ) calculus.bib using Searchlight? (or is it Sherlock?---the magnifying glass icon at the top right of my screen---I am using OS 10.7.4 on a Macbook Pro) but cannot seem to get a pathname to any of them.  When I Bibtex my master file, it seems to find the appropriate calculus.bib, and (Searchlight?) displays the content of all of the versions it exhibits.  But when I double-click on the text shown, I am shunted into Papers2, an app which I stopped using long ago and into which I certainly didn't put a file like calculus.bib.
