How do I switch a ceiling fan to a regular light fixture?

I live in a trailer that was built in 1974. I took down a ceiling fan that was hanging way too low for my height. I was very surprised to find 6 wires hanging down from the ceiling. Two of the wires are black, two of the wires are white, one of them is red, and the other is bare/ground. The fixture I bought to replace the ceiling fan has one black wire, one white, and one bare/ground. What is the proper way to connect my new light fixture to the wires that used to connect to my ceiling fan?
