Question

This one may be a bit easier...enjoy

I'm sure you've heard

No one's greater than me

I'm the best there has been

In the whole of history

Ironworker by name

and work it I did.

I used it for my glory

and from me, many hid.

I see millions of commuters

to and from many lands.

My face can be seen

in million's of hands.

No one knows

where I am right now

Solve this riddle

and to you I will bow...

Is it....

Some of the clues lead me here, some lead away.

Joseph Smith, Jr.? Last name was Smith (named for an Ironworker) and he "worked metal" with the whole golden plates thing. Not too sure about people hiding from him though. And the "in the palms of hands" line could refer to the Book of Mormon constantly being distributed?

Chuck Norris

:P
god

No and No...good guesses though

could it be...
Paul Bunyan?

It is not Paul Bunyan...it is a real historical figure (could be living, could be dead...)

Big Bad John

Nope, it is a real person...not just a song. Good guess though

Hmm...I like the thought process, but alas, it is incorrect. But hey, to add to your thoughts, a lot of people "hide" from Jehovah's witnesses when they come around door to door (not saying I am one of them...just commenting that I know a lot of people do)...but the answer is still incorrect B))

Perhaps a wild shot in the dark but
Julius Ceaser ?

One nice thing about wild shots in the dark, is sometimes you end up hitting something....

You missed this time, but that shouldn't stop you :D

Eisenhower. Means "Iron Cutter", is on the face of some American money, is probably the name of an airport somewhere. I'm sure someone says he was the best (especially in WWII). As an avid golfer, he used irons a lot. I don't get the "nobody knows where he is"...

I actually like your answer. But you are correct in that that doesn't meet all the criteria...as a result, it is not the correct answer. Well thought out answer, though...
