"Bisbee Blue" as written by and John Burns Dan Coleman....
When you can't find the hours
Days keep on slipping through
Avenues under construction
Blocking out your sky blues

burried beneath the letters
Bills and the junk in the mail
Finding the strain to your heart
From the troubles down the trail

no sign of your old haunts here

gone with the copper crews
Veins mined in vein remind you
Choices we choose to lose

new cities keep on sprawling
Old towns falling too
Raining a river of color

and it's flowing bisbee blue

straight to you bisbee blue

some say this way's the only one that's true

bring me back bisbee blue
Bring me back

oh these days, seem dark

darkest I've seen

darling you send me through the hours

days keep on sifting through
Chipping away to remember

days with you bisbee blue
Shining like bisbee blue
Bring me back bisbee blue

    General CommentBisbee is a small city in Arizona, home of a formerly copper and turquoise-rich mines.

    The narrator appears to be bemoaning the loss of something beautifully found in nature (the blue turquoise gems from the mine) which has now been lost forever due to short-term commercial mining priorities ("Some say this way's the only one that's true/bring me back bisbee blue)

    General CommentA wonderfully subtle song of longing for a time when our natural resources weren't destroyed for the almighty $$
