Normal 120V AC would be Black hot, White neutral, Green ground.

Black also being a color used for negative 12V. Boat wire for 12V is available with yellow instead of black to avoid confusion. In addition any 120V AC should be in conduit.

Red is usually used as another hot for 220V. Paired with the white.

Of course once you find things like you have, the color is not to be relied upon. Where the other end is connected needs to established.

Nigel Calder's book is the go to resource, but I do not have access to it right now.

Be safe. Good luck.
