We'd like to thank David Card of Poor David's Pub for being so supportive over the last couple years, helping us get through some really tough spots with the bookstores.

My wife and I have been hearing great live music at his places since he was on McKinney Avenue way back in the '70s and then when he was on Greenville Avenue for many years before he made the move to S. Lamar a very short distance from Southside and next door to Bill's Records.

David Card, owner of Poor David's Pub, booked her for her first "real" opening gig.

Performing in Texas, with a few trips to New York, people began to ask to purchase music. A finalist several years running in the B.W. Stevenson Songwriting Competition, and winner of's Female Vocalist of the Year, she decided it was time to record.
She launched That's Mine, on her own label, 225 Miles Music.


David treats you right and... Bill's is right next door!"

David Teaff - " What a show last Saturday night, Burning Sky followed by Chill Factor. The house was rocking all night. Dallas doesn't know what they missed. These two bands in this venue, we never wanted it to end. Thanks for getting them to PDP."
Lauren - "Thank you for your time David, and for owning such an awesome venue (I'd rather see any performer at your place than anywhere else!) "

Years later the parents of a man named David Card bought her house and discovered the marker.

Dallas residents know Card as the owner of Poor David's Pub, a long-running music venue off South Lamar that just so happens to be a few blocks from dive bar Lee Harvey's, named after Dallas' most-infamous resident.
A cousin of Card's took the marker for safe-keeping and his wife later sold it to an obscure car museum in Illinois. Card reached a legal settlement with the museum and recently drove north to retrieve it.
Card told the Dallas Morning News that he might display at one of his properties or see if the nearby Sixth Floor Museum may want it for its collection.

Poor David's Pub owner David Card fought a costly 3 1/2 -year legal battle to obtain Lee Harvey Oswald's original tombstone. He hopes The Sixth Floor Museum will want to acquire and display it.

Three and a half years ago, I wrote about David Card and the legal quest he had begun to reclaim Oswald's original tombstone.
If Card's name rings a bell, it's because he's Poor David, the owner of venerable Poor David's Pub. And he's even poorer now after almost four years of legal wrangling over the stone.
Card said Tuesday, placing his hands on the gravestone, displayed for my benefit in the dark, daytime emptiness of Poor David's Pub.
The confidential legal agreement with Historic Auto Attractions owner Wayne Lensing prevents Card from disclosing any details or disparaging anyone.
Card said he has hoped all along that The Sixth Floor Museum will want to acquire and display the tombstone. But its clouded legal status has prevented any serious discussion till now.
In the meantime, he's considering what he called a "Day of Display" at Poor David's or some other Cedars area location. "I'd like to do it to thank the many people who supported me on this," he said. "They knew the stress and financial strain I was under."
He won't disclose his legal fees. "Just say it was brutal," he said.
But Card said he never wavered in his determination to get the stone back to Texas and to Dallas. "I was the only one with the legal standing and the financial means to fight for it," he said.
Reflecting his hopes, he said, "Everyone who goes into The Sixth Floor and sees it and photographs it will be grateful it is where it is."
