I did some checking, Rodge. Didn't find it.

   Googled it
   Checked abcnotation.com
   Checked The Session.

The Session has some discussion, but it doesn't lead to a tune.

========
Are you aware that shepherd's purse is a weed? The title has a tongue-in-cheek air to it which makes me suspect the tune is contemporary.

Not in Gore's Scottish Fiddle Tune Index.

Who played it?

You could try the National Tune Index fiche if it's pre-1800.

Here's a happy arrangement in a more traditional jig tempo: https://georgianettleton.bandcamp.com/album/the-shepherds-wife-harmony-fiddle-and-cello-sheet-music

Yet the world could use a dance tune called The Shepherd's Purse.

Here's a picture of the plant:

http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/weeds/plants/shepherd_purse.htm

We see jagged leaves in a circle with a tall, spindly flower stalk. Clearly we need a jig or reel which mostly zigzags back on itself but has one place where the melody zips way high to evoke the flower stalk.

I'd write it, but my sound card is fried.

Rodge, it appears you can find sheet music and abc online is you omit the word Waltz. Search for "The Shepherd's Wife."

leeneia, I'd love to hear a tune as described here by you. I hope you'll write "The Shepherd's Purse" when you can!
